Dear Dave C,
It was a great learning experience for me. When I started from India, I was
having a feeling that something good is going to happen at INCOB. In fact,
I got much more than expected. Apart from getting opportunity to present my
work and chairing few sessions, attending the GALAXY regional community
discussion and the workshop was something very significant. I was a great
opportunity to have extensive discussions with Dave C, Gareth Price, Simon
and Nuwan. I have a very strong feeling that we will together will be able
to get a good start to Galaxy India community very soon.
I will try to personally meet Anshu and other members very soon to discuss
the exact road map. Right now, I am discussing GALAXY project with my
colleagues and will try to make my students work on GALAXY platform. As
discussed with Nuwan, I will also to make a local GALAXY server in my lab
as a pilot project probably by mid of November.
Recently, I have got a task to upgrade the curriculum of M. Sc.
Bioinformatics and I will utilize this opportunity to include a significant
proportion of GALAXY tools in the Practical part.
I am thankful to all of you, especially Dave C for giving this rare

It was really great meeting everyone and great to see the Galaxy community
gaining momentum in India. I've got in contact with some folks from the
University of Colombo in Sri Lanka, and they too have expressed an interest
in participating in these regional efforts. At present, the community in
Sri Lanka is somewhat nascent, so they may play more of an observational
role, but in future, perhaps the community can grow to contribute
additional resources to this effort. If that sounds ok at this stage, I can
loop them into the conversation.
