Galaxy Australasia Meeting 2017 (GAMe 2017)

GAMe 2017 One of our first activities is to organise the Galaxy Australasia Meeting 2017 (GAMe 2017), being held in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 3-9 February.  GAMe 2017 features a day of life science researcher training, a two-day conference, and a four day workshop on how to administer Galaxy instances.

About us:

The establishment of Galaxy Australia is supported by the EMBL Australia Bioinformatics Resource (EMBL-ABR) in its appointed role supporting the development of skills and training in the Australian life science research community. At the EMBL-ABR Hub, hosted at the Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative (VLSCI), Galaxy is used extensively for teaching and data analysis directly as well as through the Australian-made Genomics Virtual Laboratory. VLSCI’s expert bioinformaticians and professional staff will help promote community activities and training.
