Week 6: GCC/BOSC

This week we spent most of our time attending and volunteering at GCC/BOSC (Galaxy Community Conference/ Bioinformatics Open Source Conference). While the conference wasn’t extremely relevant to what we’re working on right now, we learned how to use software like Galaxy and Intermine, which might be useful to us in future projects. Also, this was the first conference I’ve ever attended so it was very interesting to learn how conferences work and to meet people.
