*We are delighted to announce that the Galaxy Training Network (GTN) https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Teach/GTN has officially joined the Global Organisation for Bioinformatics & Training (GOBLET) http://mygoblet.org/.*
GTN is a network of people and groups that present Galaxy and Galaxy-based training around the world. GOBLET provides "a global, sustainable support and networking structure for bioinformatics educators/trainers and students/trainees (including a training portal for sharing materials, tools, tips and techniques; guidelines and best practice documents; facilities to help train the trainers; and offering different learning pathways for different types of learner)."
GTN's GOBLET membership will raise the visibility of Galaxy, Galaxy training https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Teach/Resources, and Galaxy Trainers https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Teach/Trainers in the bioinformatics community, and help make the Galaxy Community aware of what GOBLET and its members have to offer.
This membership was made possible by a unique arrangement where these five GTN members https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Teach/Trainers each contributed 20% of the cost of a Bronze Organizational Membership:
UC Davis Bioinformatics Core Training Program http://training.bioinformatics.ucdavis.edu/, United States -
Galaxy Project http://galaxyproject.org/, United States
Many thanks to these GTN members for making this happen, and to the GOBLET Executive for this opportunity.
Dave Clements on behalf of the Galaxy Training Network https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Teach/Trainers
