Dear Sarah and Gabry,
I would like to confirm that the Galaxy Training Network is interested in
participating in, and would like to send one or more people to this
hackathon in April. We don't know who yet, but metagenomics is a key
concern for the Galaxy community. (And we are holding a Metagenomics tools
and workflows hack next week.)
Do you need anything else from us at this time?

Last week I received a reminder from GOBLET that my membership was due for
renewal at the beginning of March, and I'm wondering if the same five
groups will be renewing this year?
Although I read the emails related to GTN/GOBLET, I admit I have not been
an active participant, and have not even figured out how to switch the
membership from being under my personal name to "UC Davis Bioinformatics
Training Program". (Is that possible?)
There was some discussion post-GOBLET meeting for building the GTN-GOBLET
relationship. Has any of that been decided?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
