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?

You are invited to participate to the ‘GOBLET/Elixir thematic hackaton for
metagenomics training materials re-use’ that will take place in Copenhagen,
on 6-8 April 2016.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together trainers and researchers
working in the field of metagenomics from within Europe and beyond, to
enhance the training network within this field.
The workshop will focus on the curation of training materials in the area
of metagenomics data analysis, encompassing appropriate high-throughput
sequencing workflows (genome assembly, annotation and analysis) and related
subjects, such as phylogenetics and comparative genomics.
Participants are expected to bring to the workshop the training materials
that they have developed in the domain of metagenomics data analysis.
During the workshop we aim to:
- Develop a collection of metagenomics training materials that are
consistently described, to enable sharing and re-use of such materials
across the training community;
- Define an approach for the curation of training materials for re-use
through training portals and repositories such as TeSS and the GOBLET
- Link training materials to databases and standards in the BioSharing
registry and tools in the ELIXIR Tools & Data Services Registry.
Funding is available for attendees that are not Elixir funded.
Save the date and drop us an email to confirm your participation.
Additional information will follow shortly.
Looking forward to see you in Copenhagen!
