The Open Genome Informatics team serves as an “umbrella" organization to support the efforts of many open-access open-source bioinformatics projects for <https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/> Google Summer of Code (GSoC<https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/>). Among this list of projects are Reactome and GMOD and its software projects -- JBrowse; Galaxy; WormBase; and others.
Call for 2021 Project Ideas and Mentors: We are seeking project ideas to post and attract talented students to this year’s Summer of Code competition. If you have a project idea for which you would like to mentor a student, please contact Robin Haw, Marc Gillespie, and Scott Cain (emails above).
You can also submit your ideas here<http://gmod.org/wiki/GSOC_Project_Ideas_2021>.
For more information please refer to the Open Genome Informatics page on the GMOD.org website<http://gmod.org/wiki/GSoC><http://gmod.org/wiki/GSoC#Google_Summer_of_Code_2020>.
The mentoring organization application deadline with GSoC is February 19th at 2 pm EST. So, if you are interested in taking part with the team please let us know as soon as possible.
Please forward this to others who might be interested in taking part.
If you have any questions please let us know.
Robin, Marc, and Scott.
2022 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2022)
July 17-23, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
April 12: Oral presentation and lightning talk abstracts due
May 12: Early registration
June 3: Demo and poster abstracts due
The 2022 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2022)
<https://galaxyproject.org/events/gcc2022/> will be held July 17-23 in
Minnesota. GCC brings together hundreds of faculty, clinicians,
researchers, and students, all working in and supporting data intensive
science that is accessible, shareable, and reproducible.
GCC2022 features oral presentations, lightning talks, posters, demos,
birds-of-a-feather gatherings (BoFs), training, a CollaborationFest, and
plenty of opportunities for networking.
Presentations will cover the full spectrum of Galaxy applications,
enhancements, and deployments. If you are working in data intensive science
then GCC2022 is an ideal conference for sharing your work, learning from
others, and finding new collaborators.
Present your work!
for talks, lightning talks, demos, and posters is now open. If you work in
data-intensive science then please consider presenting your work at
GCC2022. This is a chance to present to 200+ researchers, all addressing
challenges in data intensive science. Abstract submissions for oral
presentations are due on April 12. Submit an abstract (or two) now!
Topics of Interest
If you’re currently working on any of these topics, this conference is for
Omics data analysis: genomic sequencing, microbiome, proteomics,
imaging, you name it!
Tools and visualizations for working with omics data
Compute infrastructure for enabling data intensive science
Galaxy applications in any domain or topic: ML, climate, NPL, …
Outreach and training related to data analysis
Registration information is available on the conference website
registration ends May 12. So, register
Galaxy <https://galaxyproject.org/> is a platform for data integration and
analysis in the life sciences. It enables researchers to build, run, share,
and repeat their own complex computational analyses using only a web
browser and without having to first learn system administration and command
The Galaxy Project is driven by a vibrant community who publish workflows
and analyses, wrap new tools, maintain and enhance the source code, provide
support, and write documentation and training materials. Galaxy is
open-source and freely available, and is deployed in hundreds of
organizations, running on everything from laptops to supercomputers to
public and private clouds. Over 150 of these platforms are publicly
available and can be used with little or no setup. Thousands of tools have
been ported to Galaxy and are deployable from the Galaxy Tool Shed. Galaxy
was developed to support life science research, but the platform is domain
agnostic and is now used in domains as diverse as natural language
processing, computational solid geometry, and social science.
Hope to see you in Minneapolis!
