As part of our work under the Gallantries Grant we are establishing a new topic within the GTN specifically focused on Data Science skills. This topic will include tutorials covering things such as:

  • Python
  • R
  • SQL
  • the Command Line
  • Git

as well as a number of supporting topics on data management and ensuring your data is FAIR. We currently have the R, SQL, and command line lessons so go check those out now!

Phylogenetics tutorial takes researchers back to basics!

13 June 2024   Phylogenetics Tutorial GTN Australian BioCommons

A new Galaxy Training Network tutorial has been created to take researchers back to basics to uncover the principles of phylogenetics and how tree-building methods work. A longstanding collaboration between Professor Michael Charleston from the University of Tasmania and Australian BioCommons has delivered this self-guided tutorial featuring videos and hands-on exercises. To maximise its impact, the resource was tailored specifically to be shared globally via the Galaxy Training Network, and will form the basis of an upcoming live training workshop.

From GTN Intern to Tutorial Author to Bioinformatician

With growing access and interest in sequencing data, Galaxy is a knight in shining armor for wet lab scientists hoping to analyze their own data. With long term intentions of increasing access to bioinformatic analyses, the Galaxy Training Network (GTN) creates a safe space where non-computer-scientists may analyze their own data and even learn to code: an invaluable skill in today’s scientific world. Galaxy introduced me to brand new skills as an undergraduate and ultimately changed the trajectory of my career. Here is my story as a biology undergraduate with no coding experience turned GTN contributor &, eventually, coding bioinformatician: thanks to Galaxy.
