The NCBI will assist with a data science hackathon to take place on the NIH Campus in Bethesda, Maryland, from April 16-18, 2018.
The hackathon will focus on tools for advanced analysis of biomedical datasets including text, images, next generation sequencing data, proteomics, and metadata. Many individuals who attend these events have already engaged in the use of large datasets or in the development of informatics tools, code, or pipelines; however, researchers who are in the earlier stages of their data science journey, including students and postdocs are also encouraged to apply. Some projects are available to other non-scientific developers, mathematicians, or librarians.
The event is open to anyone selected for the hackathon and willing to travel to Bethesda, Maryland.
On Wednesday, February 14, 2018, NCBI will present a webinar that will show you how to quickly retrieve sequences in any format from NCBI.
Date & time: Wed, Feb 14, 2018 12:00 PM – 12:30 PM EST
Ever need to quickly grab a protein or nucleotide sequence in FASTA or another format from NCBI? This NCBI Minute will show you how to accomplish this using the nucleotide and protein web pages, an NCBI URL, and – the most flexible way – through the commandline EDirect client that accesses the E-Utilities API.
This blog post is for researchers, students, and postdocs, as well as non-scientific developers, mathematicians and librarians.
This summer, we were quite busy running and cohosting hackathons. These events educate participants, allow for networking among computational biologists and produce bioinformatics software prototypes. Read on for a review of products from our Summer 2017 hackathons.
