Open Source

By Alexander Morley, Software Sustainability Institute Fellow This post was first published in Alex Morley's blog. Note: A couple weeks ago I went on a week long residency learning about human- or user-centred design. I learnt a lot, but am obviously not an expert. Thus the aim of this post is to share what I learned and my opinion about why a wider consideration of these techniques could be a good thing, rather than tell you how to run your project.
The late round of abstract submission to BOSC2019 is open now. BOSC welcomes submissions about all aspects of open source bioinformatics, open science and open data. The Bioinformatics Open Source Conference promotes and facilitates the open source development of bioinformatics tools and open science. BOSC 2019 will be part of ISMB/ECCB in Basel. The deadline for submissions is Thursday, May 15, at 23:59 UTC-12.

Galaxy is a highly-successful bioinformatics workflow management tool, and BOSC is run by the Open Bioinformatics Foundation (OBF), an organisation dedicated to open-source biology and bioinformatics related software.
