GCCBOSC this year was a combination of two open source bioinformatics conferences: GCC, the Galaxy Community Conference, and BOSC, the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference. Galaxy is a highly-successful bioinformatics workflow management tool, and BOSC is run by the Open Bioinformatics Foundation (OBF), an organisation dedicated to open-source biology and bioinformatics related software.
