There is a clear demand for hands-on bioinformatics training. The development of bioinformatics workshop content is both time-consuming and expensive. Therefore, enabling trainers to develop bioinformatics workshops in a way that facilitates reuse is becoming increasingly important. Themost widespread practice for sharing workshop content is throughmaking PDF, PowerPoint andWord documents available online.While this effort is to be commended, such content is usually not so easy to reuse or repurpose and does not capture all the information required for a third party to rerun a workshop.We present an open, collaborative framework for developing andmaintaining, reusable and shareable hands-on training workshop content.
