ELIXIR/GOBLET/GTN hackathon for Galaxy training material re-use

Mon 22 May - Wed 24 May 2017


This three day workshop will bring together representatives of the ELIXIR Galaxy Working Group, as well as trainers and developers working on the Galaxy project from Europe and beyond, to:

  • Build on an existing collection of Galaxy training materials. During the workshop we will collate additional materials, including topics relevant to the ELIXIR use-cases, and ensure that, for each workflow, a minimum set of training materials is available, including slides, practical exercises, Docker containers, and Galaxy tours.
  • Improve materials’ annotations (introducing full BioSchemas compliance) and align them with existing ELIXIR efforts (linking to TeSS). During the workshop materials will be curated to ensure they are properly described, according to the ELIXIR/GOBLET guidelines, and BioSchemas compliant.
  • Extend the existing “curated” dataset collection and assign DOI to individual datasets.
  • Increase the number of Docker/Virtual Machines available for easy installation of Galaxy training environments.
  • Explore the feasibility of developing a toolkit to facilitate plug in of different datasets in existing training material/workflows through a templating approach.

This event is supported by ELIXIR-EXCELERATE, an European Commission grant within the Research Infrastructures programme of Horizon 2020, grant agreement number 676559.
