    Swiss Galaxy Workshop, Wednesday, October 3rd, Bern


    This workshop is aimed at Galaxy administrators and users alike. We also welcome participants who are using workflow management systems other than Galaxy and tool developers who are looking for such systems to offer their tools to a wider audience.

    We would like to discuss the status of the Galaxy project, new developments, interface to other systems, extensions and best practice in reproducible research.

    The workshop is part of the SyBIT Tech Day series.
