Contributing to the Galaxy Training Material - Creating a new tutorial - Defining metadata

Galaxy is a great solution to train the bioinformatics concepts: numerous bioinformatics tools are available (almost 5,000 in the ToolShed), it can be used by people without amy 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 decide 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.

Questions of the tutorial:

  • What does Metadata in GTN means?
  • Which kind of metadata can I annotate?
  • For what is metadata used?

Objectives of the tutorial:

  • Adding metadata for a tutorial
  • Defining learning objectives

Resource type: Tutorial
