The March 2015 Galaxy News
March 2nd 2015
A refresh of UseGalaxy.org is underway. Find out what's changing in a new screencast.
The event schedule for GCC2015 has been released, and it features a few new events as well as all of the familiar ones:
- Code Hackathon, 4-5 July
- Data Wrangling Hackathon, 4-5 July (new)
- Training SunDay, 5 July (new)
- Training Day, 6 July
- GCC Meeting, 7-8 July
In addition, the workshop schedules for the new Training SunDay, and the returning Training Day have been finalised. A record 15 topics will be covered in 18 sessions over two days of training. There are topics on using Galaxy, interacting with it programmatically, and deploying, administering, and extending Galaxy. No matter what you do with Galaxy, there are workshops for you.
Abstract submission for oral and poster presentations is now open. We again have an arrangement with GigaScience that any oral or poster presentation will also be eligible for consideration for publication in the GigaScience "Galaxy: Data Intensive and Reproducible Research" series (first announced for GCC2013).
Finally, registration is not open yet, but the list of registration packages and their costs have been. Early registration is very affordable and starts at less than £40 per day for students and postdocs.
And there is no shortage of other upcoming events either, including RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq Analysis with Galaxy, UC Davis, March 23-26, and at least 12 other events in the next 2 months.
