BoF: Galaxy-India: Launch and Outreach Plans

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Galaxy Community members have been preparing to launch the Galaxy-India community later this year.  If you are interested in learning more or contributing to this community then please join us for this BoF.  We will discuss the plans for the launch and outreach, including (pandemic permitting) workshops in India later this year or next year.  We will also discuss possible work towards a Galaxy-India server.  Interested?  Please join us.

A tentative structure for BoF is as follows:
  1. Learning from other major Galaxy installations 
  2. Preparations for setting up Galaxy India - Human and infrastructure resources 
  3. Roadmap: role mapping and responsibilities so that we have a dedicated team to coordinate and manage this activity 
  4. Integration of Bioclues and Galaxy communities

Birds of a Feather (BoFs) are informal, self-organized meetups focused on specific topics. Anyone is welcome to propose a BoF. Have an idea? Please propose a BoF no later than July 10.
