GCC2019 has ended
The 2019 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2019) was held in Freiburg, Germany, 1-8 July.  There was one day of training, three days of mixed meeting and training, and then two to four days of CollaborationFest.  The meeting featured joint & parallel sessions; invited, accepted, and lightning talks; poster and demo sessions; birds-of-a-feather meetups; social events; and training sessions every day.

Thanks to everyone who helped make GCC2019 a success!

Gareth Price

Queensland Facility for Advanced Bioinformatics
Head of Computational Biology
Brisbane, Australia
Work: Gareth is Head of the Computational Biology team at QFAB, joining in early 2017 after nearly 15 years as a genomics scientist. He has been involved in experimental design, data QC, analysis and interpretation from early printed microarrays through to multiple NGS platforms. These works have involved a variety of model organisms from microorganisms, fruit flies, mice to humans. At QFAB Gareth helps translate researcher’s biological queries into the systemic informatics language required for analysis. Gareth’s view is that biological research, clinical research, and healthcare are at their best when coupled with the most accurate, highest throughput and innovative technology and analysis. He uses this view to motivate the use of innovation to reduce the time between data generation and data interpretation and has taken this philosophy into the role of Program Manager for Galaxy Australia, to run and help promote this important Australian resource to all life science researchers. On behalf of the Galaxy Australia team Gareth was very proud to receive this year three Australian Information Industry Association Queensland iAwards; the Infrastructure and Platforms Innovation of the Year award, the Community Services Markets award and the Queensland Premier’s iAward for Public Sector Innovation.

Social: I'm looking forward to visiting Germany (again), exploring the local area, enjoying a stein or three, cycling when I can and getting my nerd on with a side trip to Marklin Museum in Goppingen
