BY-COVID and RO-Crate collaboration brings new topic: FAIR Data, Workflows & More

new topic new feature

Posted on: 11 May 2023 purlPURL:

As part of the BY-COVID project, the RO-Crate team and BY-COVID members have brought several RO-Crate related tutorials into the Galaxy Training Network, under a brand new Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable (FAIR) topic!

What are RO-Crates?

RO-Crate is a community effort to establish a lightweight approach to packaging research data with their metadata. It is based on annotations in JSON-LD, and aims to make best-practice in formal metadata description accessible and practical for use in a wider variety of situations, from an individual researcher working with a folder of data, to large data-intensive computational research environments.

These are the way to package up your research in a well annotated and FAIR manner.

There are a number of “profiles” within RO-Crates, we are currently focused on the “Workflow Run” profile but we encourage you to look into the other profiles

What’s new for you?

As part of this collaboration we bring you several new tutorials:

These tutorials are meant to help you learn how to use and create RO-Crates in your own work.

Where can I learn more?

These tutorials will be taught at Smörgåsbord 3 so if you want to learn more, go sign up now!

I want more FAIR Training!

While the addition of the RO-Crates tutorials marks the creation of a new Galaxy Training Network topic, FAIR training, it currently only has tutorials focused on Research Objects and specifically the workflow profile. But watch this space! More tutorials are coming soon.

Learn to use MINERVA Platform's COVID-19 Disease Map with Galaxy

28 March 2024   by-covid pathways minerva gtn infrastructure new feature

As part of the work of BeYond COVID, we have developed a new integration between the MINERVA Platform’s COVID-19 Disease Map and Galaxy! Datasets created within Galaxy can now be seamlessly visualized in the MINERVA Platform, allowing you to explore your data in the context of the COVID-19 Disease Map.

Cool URLs Don't Change, GTN URLs don't either.

18 March 2024   gtn infrastructure new feature

At the Galaxy Training Network we are really committed to ensuring our training materials are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. This means that we want to make sure that the URLs to our training materials are persistent and don’t change. The GTN wants you to be able to rely on our URLs once you’ve added them to a poster or training material, without having to worry about them breaking in the future.

We know the GTN has a lot of learning materials (400 and counting!) which can make it quite difficult to figure out where to start in some topics.
