Subject: Metagenomics training materials hackaton - April 2016
To: "all(a)mygoblet.org" <all(a)mygoblet.org>
Dear GOBLET members,
GOBLET and Elixir are planning a joint hackathon for metagenomic training
material re-use, to take place in Copenhagen in 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, encompassing appropriate high-throughput sequencing
workflows (genome assembly, annotation and analysis) and related subjects,
such as phylogenetics and comparative genomics.
During the workshop we aim:
- to develop a collection of metagenomics training materials that are
consistently described, to enable sharing and re-use of these materials
across the training community;
- to define an approach for the curation of training materials for
re-use through training portals and repositories such as TeSS and GOBLET;
- to link training materials to tools in the "ELIXIR Tools & Data
In order to achieve this, we would like to invite metagenomics trainers
from GOBLET to participate to this workshop, bring their own training
materials and work collaboratively to annotate them in a consistent manner.
We expect around 30 participants, representing both Elixir and GOBLET, to
attend this event.
If you have developed training materials in the analysis of metagenomics
data and are interested in attending such workshop, please email Gabriella
Rustici (gr231(a)cam.ac.uk) or Sarah Morgan (sarah.morgan(a)ebi.ac.uk) by *Friday
25th September *to state your interest. We would be grateful if you could
also send us a brief description of your training involvement so far.
We look forward to hear from you.
