GOBLET: achievements and goals a year on

GOBLET Consortium

Abstract


The idea to create a Global Organisation for Bioinformatics Learning, Education and Training (GOBLET) was formulated during a satellite meeting of the 24th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of EMBnet (the Global Bioinformatics Network) in Uppsala, in June 2012. Here, leaders and representatives of ten international societies, networks and institutes concluded that tangible benefits could be realised if organisations whose core business activities involve bioinformatics education and training could more readily share their experiences, expertise and resources. GOBLET was subsequently established as a Dutch Foundation, and held its first meeting in Amsterdam in November 2012, hosted by The Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre (NBIC) (GOBLET Consortium, 2013). A year on, we report the outcomes of GOBLET’s first AGM: we review its principal achievements, and reflect on future priorities, moving forward.
