The BioTools Workshop, held on 19-20 January 2016 in Freiburg, was an example of what close collaboration in the bioinformatics community can achieve. The event was hosted by the staff of the RBC team, in particular Björn Grüning and Rolf Backofen. Twenty-seven scientists from de.NBI and ELIXIR attended the workshop entitled “ELIXIR Tools and Service Registry Hackaton”.

The first summer school of the German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (de.NBI) was conducted at Justus-Liebig-University Giessen from September 20th until September 26th 2015. Out of almost 40 applications we selected 20 participants coming from Germany, Austria, Poland, South Africa and the United States.
