Galaxy Training Network

Galaxy Training Network

The Galaxy Training Network (GTN) is a network of people and groups that present Galaxy and Galaxy-based training around the world.  GTN helps researchers find online training material, and trainers in their geographic area, and helps advertise training events as well.

These pages describes the Galaxy Training Network, and everything else related to teaching Galaxy or teaching Bioinformatics with Galaxy:

Training Resources Directory

The Training Resources Directory is a catalog of training resources for Galaxy. Training resources include tutorials, slides, virtual machines, and entire workshop packages that can be used to teach with Galaxy.

There is also an easy way to add new resources to the directory.

Trainer Directory

Looking for someone to teach bioinformatics and Galaxy at a workshop or your institution? Perhaps you are someone who teaches Galaxy and would be interested in helping others teach it, or in teaching Galaxy to other groups? The Galaxy Trainer Directory lists everyone who is interested in training in their region, or even around the world.

Compute Platform Advice

Wondering what kind of platform you'll need for a successful training event? See the Computing Platforms page for advice of what works and does not work in different situations.

Best Practices

Learn from experienced trainers and share what you have learned on the Galaxy Training Best Practices page.

Mailing List

The Galaxy-Training mailing list is the place to post questions and announcements related to Galaxy training. It is also the official mailing list of the GTN.


Want to know what training events are scheduled in the coming months? Or publish your event on the list? See the Galaxy Events page which lists all known upcoming Galaxy events, including many training events.


If you are interested in being a part of this effort, you can register as a Galaxy Trainer, add your resources to the Training Resources Directory, and contribute to best practices for teaching with Galaxy. Still have questions? Please contact Galaxy Outreach <outreach AT galaxyproject DOT org>.

Galaxy Training Network Global Organisation for Bioinformatics Learning, Education & Training (GOBLET)

We are delighted to announce that the Galaxy Training Network (GTN) has officially joined the Global Organisation for Bioinformatics & Training (GOBLET).

GTN is a network of people and groups that present Galaxy and Galaxy-based training around the world. GOBLET provides "a global, sustainable support and networking structure for bioinformatics educators/trainers and students/trainees (including a training portal for sharing materials, tools, tips and techniques; guidelines and best practice documents; facilities to help train the trainers; and offering different learning pathways for different types of learner)."

GTN's GOBLET membership will raise the visibility of Galaxy, Galaxy training, and Galaxy Trainers in the bioinformatics community, and help make the Galaxy Community aware of what GOBLET and its members have to offer.

This membership was made possible by a unique arrangement where these five GTN members each contributed 20% of the cost of a Bronze Organizational Membership:

Many thanks to these GTN members for making this happen, and to the GOBLET Executive for this opportunity.

Dave Clements, on behalf of the Galaxy Training Network
