BoF: Genome Browsers and visualization in Galaxy
Galaxy's architecture supports genomic data visualization with a plugin mechanism that enables integration with tools like JBrowse and Apollo, and call-out visualization with tools like the UCSC Genome Browser, IGV and IGB.  

This BoF will discuss the Galaxy genomic data viz ecosystem, and options for improving it.

Meet us at Gigantic Brewing, starting at 6pm.  Gigantic has a large beverage selection and two adjacent, pretty darn good, food cart options.

GCC OBF CollaborationFest: Core
OBF’s CodeFest, Galaxy’s Hack the Galaxy, and the NIH’s Data Commons Pilot Phase Consortium are all converging for CollaborationFest 2018.  CoFest starts at 9am on Friday morning, the day after the GCCBOSC meeting ends and features 2, 3, or 4 days of collaborative work on projects that matter to open source bioinformatics.

CoFest will be held in the Performing Arts Building (PAB) and will make extensive use of classrooms and PAB Atrium, an ideal space for collaboration.
CollaborationFest has four tracks:

  • OBF: Contribute to any open source bioinformatics project.
  • Galaxy development (Galaxy Dev): Learn how Galaxy and Galaxy code development works, and contribute to the Galaxy code base
  • Galaxy documentation, analysis, and training (Galaxy DAT): Focus on expanding Galaxy community resources like training materials and documentation.
  • Data Commons

CoFest participants will coalesce around shared interests and address common challenges related to those interests. These clusters form before, at the beginning of, and throughout CollaborationFest. These clusters will be fluid and highly interactive with each other.  These groups and clusters will be fluid and highly interactive with each other. There will be a joint gathering of all communities at least once a day.

Prepare for CoFest

The GCCBOSC meeting will be followed by CollaborationFest: Core, two days with lots of opportunities and emphasis on  learning about open source bioinformatics projects and software.
CollaborationFest will have three tracks:
  • Galaxy development (Galaxy Dev): Learn how Galaxy and Galaxy code development works, and contribute to the Galaxy code base
  • Galaxy documentation, analysis, and training (Galaxy DAT): Focus on expanding Galaxy community resources like training materials and documentation.
  • OBF: Contribute to any open source bioinformatics project.
These groups will be fluid and highly interactive with each other. There will be a joint gathering of all communities at least once a day.

GCC OBF CollaborationFest: Encore
The first two days, CollaborationFest: Core emphasize collaboration and learning.  The next two days, CollaborationFest: Encore lean heavily towards collaboration (although, trust us, organizers won't stop you from learning either).  We expect CollaborationFest: Encore to be a smaller group of contributors.
