Please join us for the (soft) launch of the Galaxy India Community.  This community is about enabling data intensive research and instruction in India using the Galaxy platform. As a group, we are/will sponsor

  • Training and workshops, both standalone and at larger meetings
  • Webinars and community calls
  • In person gatherings, once these become prudent
  • Communications channels, including chat and a mailing list
  • An India-focused server hosted by the European Galaxy Team
  • And, later this year, an India-based UseGalaxy server

This BoF will cover community resources, and discuss where the group is planning to go, and where we should be planning to go.

Galaxy India intends to have a full launch, later this year as part of Inbix 2021. Please help us get started.
