The Gallantries project is a collaboration between five European universities, members of Software Carpentry, and members of the Galaxy Project. The project aims to increase bioinformatics and core data analysis skills in the field of life sciences across Europe. In collaboration with higher education institutions we will be developing novel bioinformatics learning modules which can be used alone or combined together to easily build courses with reusable, regularly updated lessons. Several institutions are exploring giving ECTS for completion of these modules.


Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for accessible, reproducible, and transparent computational research. Accessible: programming experience is not required to easily upload data, run complex tools and workflows, and visualize results. Reproducible: Galaxy captures information so that you don’t have to; any user can repeat and understand a complete computational analysis, from tool parameters to the dependency tree. Transparent: Users share and publish their histories, workflows, and visualizations via the web. Community centered: Our inclusive and diverse users (developers, educators, researchers, clinicians, etc.) are empowered to share their findings.
