Hi, Tassia.

I've worked with the Debian-Med team for many years, starting with my contribution to the Bio-Linux project:


I'm now 'last man standing' on the Bio-Linux project, which is now entirely supported by the Debian-Med team. I install 'Bio-Linux' from a customised Ubuntu-MATE 20.04 LTS 'live' USB-stick with "med-bio" and "med-bio-dev" plus "x2goserver" and Bioconda.

One of the most important aspects of the Bio-Linux project was good documentation and tutorials about the software included. We used Bio-Linux 'live' instances booted from USB-sticks or VM's to teach bioinformatics tutorial courses and I continue to do this from time to time. In particular, I am currently employed part-time on a UK/India SANH project at the University of Aberdeen to teach GWAS and other methods and I'm helping researchers in India install "med-bio" from Debian-Med under Ubuntu-MATE 20.04 LTS on their computers for GWAS.

Thanks for your interest!
