Perfectly FAIR Training!

Posted on: 13 May 2024 purlPURL:

We are happy to report that over the years of our fruitful collaboration with ELIXIR TeSS, all GTN materials should receive a perfect score on the FAIR-Checker.

This achievement is a reflection of our long standing and ongoing commitment to ensuring all of the materials you share with others via the GTN are automatically FAIR: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. Of course the GTN goes further meeting criteria for FAIR/O, as all of our resources are shared with the community under an Open License.

Why the GTN?

Amongst other competitors in the bioinformatics training material repository space the GTN is unique, we are the only one (which we’re aware of!) receiving a perfect score on the FAIR-Checker.

two more radar plots, each receive approximately half the score. a few have axes they they are perfect on, but no one is perfect on all axes, unlike us.Open image in new tab

For Tutorial Authors

We have made no new requirements for tutorial authors, simply by contributing a tutorial to the GTN which passes our linting, you can be sure it meets all relevant FAIR criteria due to our infrastructure and automation.

For Trainers

If you’re a trainer, you can be confident that all GTN materials you use in your training are FAIR. Please let your funders know you are meeting these criteria as well!

GTN Video Library 2.0: 107 hours of learning across 154 videos

14 June 2024   gtn

Many GTN tutorials already have recordings. These recordings were made by members of the community for a variety of (online) training events. Up until now, this video library were part of the Gallantries Project. We have now integrated this video library directly into the GTN, and made it even easier to add video recordings to GTN tutorials or slide decks! Just use a Google Form to submit your video recordings!

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.
