Join the Galaxy Community of Elixir for a three day workshop at Station Biological de Roscoff, France to participate in workshops and hackathons focused on tool implementation in Galaxy, development of training materials for the Galaxy Training Network (GTN), and how to teach using GTM materials.
During the first 1 1/2 days, the attendees will learn about the integration of high-quality tools within Galaxy with their dependencies (Bioconda, Planemo) using the IUC best practice guidelines. They will also learn how to use Galaxy as a training tool and develop training material for the Galaxy Training Network. The second half of the workshop will be dedicated to Hackathon sessions where attendees will be able to bring their own projects around tool integration and/or training material and develop them collaboratively, with the support of community experts. Additional information can be found here.

After a two year hiatus, the bimonthly online GalaxyAdmins meetups will return on February 28. GalaxyAdmins is a discussion group for Galaxy community members who are responsible for Galaxy installations. Our online meetups are around an hour long and feature a presentation followed by an open discussion. It's a great place to catch up on what your fellow admins are thinking about.
These and other Galaxy related events are coming up in the next few months:
XXXXXX new publications referencing, using, extending, and implementing Galaxy were added to the Galaxy Publication Library in February.
XXXXXX of the XXXXXX highlighted publications are open access.
The Galaxy Platform Directory lists resources for easily running your analysis on Galaxy, including publicly available servers, cloud services, and containers and VMs that run Galaxy. Here's what's been added since last month:
We tag papers that use, mention, implement or extend public Galaxy platforms (servers, services, clouds, containers...). Here are the counts for the past month's publications:
There are two new Galactic Blog entries:
