Galaxy Africa

The first Galaxy conference was held last week in Africa, organized by SANBI at University of Wester Cape in Cape Town. Björn and Bérénice participated:

  • On the 3rd, Björn gave the keynote talk ("Welcome to Galaxy") in the morning. During the afternoon, they gave a Galaxy introduction training

  • On the 4th, Bérénice started with the keynote talk ("Welcome to Galaxy")

  • On the last day, Björn gave an admin training with Enis Afgan and Bérénice a metagenomic training.

These 3 days were quite intense with a lot of talks and interesting discussions and feedbacks. It was a great opportunity to meet the growing community in Africa (44 participants, 7 countries, 12 institutions) and talk about Galaxy and accessible, reproducible analysis of biological data.
