Contributing to the Galaxy Training Material

Galaxy is a great solution to train the bioinformatics concepts: numerous bioinformatics tools are available (more than 7,000 in the ToolShed), it can be used by people without any computer science skills, it trains to use technology, outlining available resources and efforts that have made them accessible to researchers, it is scalable.
In 2016, the Galaxy Training Network decided to set up a new infrastructure for delivering easily Galaxy related training material. The idea was to develop something open and online based on a community effort, as always in Galaxy.
