GOBLET launches Critical Guides for bioinformatics training on f1000’s Bioinformatics Education & Training Collection
Since its foundation in 2012, the Global Organisation for Bioinformatics Learning, Education & Training (GOBLET) has built its activity through the support of its global membership and energetic and committed elected officers. Its vision is to unite, inspire and equip bioinformatics trainers worldwide through cultivating the global bioinformatics trainer community, setting standards and providing high-quality resources to support learning, education and training. Support for bioinformatics training is coordinated through various Committees: Learning, Education and Training; Fundraising; Standards; Outreach & PR; Technical.
GOBLET members now act as Community Advisors to the recent f1000 initiative: the f1000 Bioinformatics Education and Training Collection. As part of that Collection, in September 2018, a new Introduction to Bioinformatics series, containing a set of Critical Guides was published. The first Guides in the series cover: Unix, BLAST, UniProtKB, UniProtKB Flat-file Format, InterPro, and PDB:
