The Global Organisation for Bioinformatics Learning, Education and Training (GOBLET: http://mygoblet.org) is a global organisation that coordinates, shares and supports bioinformatics training activities worldwide, aiming to plug critical skills gaps, ultimately to facilitate the advancement of health- and life-science research. The focus of GOBLET’s Train-the-Trainer initiative is on setting up effective training courses to help plug known skills gaps, especially in the area of NGS data analysis. This initiative will help to share bioinformatics training expertise, experience and resources; train bioinformatics and life-science specialists; support life-science research; promote collaborations among scientists worldwide; build capacity in developing and developed countries.
