The NCBI will assist with a plenary session and a hackathon at the BioFrontiers Institute in Boulder Colorado June 18-23rd.
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 Boulder, Colorado.
Before the hackathon, there will be a one-day Plenary Session, featuring technical speakers in precision medicine, metagenomics and advanced RNA-Seq analysis, as well as an exhibitor and poster session. Please see https://hackathon.colorado.edu for more details.
There will also be an advanced nascent RNA-Seq workshop, as well as an advanced pipelining workshop, run solely by the University of Colorado, although NCBI personnel may be present. Please see https://hackathon.colorado.edu for more details.
