GTN in Discourse

gtn infrastructure new feature beta

Howdy teachers and support staff! We are exploring displaying GTN content directly in the Galaxy Help site, furthering the integration between the GTN and the Galaxy community infrastructure. When you paste a GTN Frequently Asked Questions URL into the Galaxy Discourse, it will now be rendered directly in Discourse!

Figure 1: Adding a GTN FAQ to your Galaxy Help answers can provide learners with a lot of context directly in the post, meaning they never have to leave the thread they're reading to understand what they need to do to resolve their issue.

This integration is currently in beta, and other infrastructure may be affected. If you see GTN FAQ URLs rendering poorly anywhere else, please let us know in the GTN Chat

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.

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.
