The Global Organisation for Bioinformatics Learning, Education & Training (GOBLET)

GOBLET Consortium

Abstract


Dispersed across the globe are many organisations that conduct bioinformatics education and training activities as part of their core business. The value of these different educational initiatives within their particular contexts is clear. Nevertheless, we felt that tangible benefits – in terms of efficiency, cost-effectiveness, visibility, etc. – could accrue were such organisations to more openly share their experiences, expertise and resources. Under the auspices of the 24th Annual General Meeting of EMBnet (the Global Bioinformatics Network), leaders and representatives of a variety of international societies, networks and institutes therefore met in Uppsala, Sweden, on 2 June 2012, to discuss how such benefits might be realised in practice.
