>From the GAMe 2017 Organising Committee
Today we officially launch the Galaxy Australia
<https://www.embl-abr.org.au/galaxyaustralia/> community with the opening
of registrations for the Galaxy Australasia Meeting 2017 (GAMe 2017) being
held in Melbourne over 3-9 February. Australian Galaxy users and
administrators will now have more opportunities to interact and collaborate
to identify and address the needs of the local community. The community
will also be a hub for Australian Galaxy training courses and offer a
catalog of Australian Galaxy servers.
The establishment of Galaxy Australia is supported by the EMBL Australia
Bioinformatics Resource (EMBL-ABR) in its appointed role of 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 <https://www.genome.edu.au/>. VLSCI’s expert
bioinformaticians and professional staff will help promote community
activities and training.
Galaxy Australia has a Twitter feed (@GalaxyAustralia
<https://twitter.com/galaxyaustralia>) for announcements and discussion
relevant to the community.
