1st BD2K 3rd Network of BioThings Hackathon
Dr. Andrew Su‘s team at TSRI is hosting a hackathon running from May 7 – 9, 2015. The purpose of this hackathon is to bring together experts in their respective fields to work collectively on solving challenges related to biomedical big data. This hackathon will feature networking and mentoring with leading researchers and experts, hacking on exciting projects, prizes for the best contributions, and delicious food.

During this hackathon we will work on projects relating to any of the major challenges of biomedical big data, including:

  • Locating, gaining access to, standardizing, and documenting data, software tools, and APIs
  • Developing effective, robust, reproducible and interoperable means of sharing data and software tools
  • Developing new methods for analyzing biomedical big data
  • Training researchers for analyzing biomedical big data
