his workshop will provide a forum for sharing and exploring training experiences, collaborative ideas and best practice in themes that are pivotal to modern data-rich biology: including bioinformatics, computational biology and computing. The workshop will allow participants to connect with each other at a variety of levels, and will help to establish a long-term community of trainers. This workshop has been developed under the aegis of ELIXIR-UK and GOBLET. ELIXIR-UK aims to galvanise the training community within the UK and to connect this community to other training activities across ELIXIR-Europe; GOBLET extends the networking and sharing opportunities to those involved in bioinformatics, computational biology and computing training around the globe. The workshop’s organisers are individuals involved with and passionate about training.
