Galaxy Australasia Meeting, 3-9 February, Melbourne. Abstracts due 30 Nov
The 2017 Galaxy Australasia Meeting (GAMe 2017) will be held 3-9 February in Melbourne, Australia, and bring together biomedical researchers, bioinformaticians, infrastructure providers, and data producers from across Australia and Asia.
The two day conference starts 4th February with a BIO day – for Galaxy users (biologists and bioinformaticians) – followed by an INFO day on 5th February, focussing on technical aspects of Galaxy – for bioinformaticians, tool and software developers, and research infrastructure providers. Both days feature keynotes, accepted and sponsored talks, poster and sponsor sessions, birds-of-a-feather gatherings, and lots of opportunities for networking.
The conference is preceded by a Researcher Training Day on 3 February for analysis-focussed biologists and biomedical researchers with limited experience of Galaxy. A four day intensive Galaxy Admin Training session for those installing and maintaining Galaxy servers follows the conference.
Talk abstracts are due 30 November. Early registration ends 31 December. Register now. Space is limited.
Galaxy is an open web based platform for biomedical data integration and analysis. It is deployed at large and small organizations around the world and used in a broad range of biomedical research domains, and across the tree of life. Galaxy enables life science researchers to perform their own data analysis without having to learn command line interfaces or Linux package management. Galaxy transparently records all analysis steps and eases workflow reuse and sharing. Galaxy is also a long standing and active member of GMOD.
Please let us know if you have any questions, and we hope to see you in Melbourne!
