Wednesday: How to Run an NCBI-Style Hackathon at Your Institution

Posted by on February 5th, 2018 Posted in: Education, News from NLM/NIH, Technology


Coming up this week on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, NCBI will present a webinar that will show you how to plan and run an NCBI-style hackathon at your own institution!

NCBI organizes 2-3-day hackathons at sites throughout the United States. In these events, participants work in small collaborative groups on workflows, scripts or applications to create bioinformatic solutions to problems in fields such as text mining, next-gen sequence analysis, medical informatics, and many others. Code from Hackathon projects is available on the public NCBI Hackathon GitHub site. This hour-long webinar will show you how to plan and run an NCBI-Style Hackathon at your own institution.

Date & time: Wed, Feb 7, 2018 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information about attending the webinar. A few days after the live presentation, you can view the recording on the NCBI YouTube channel. You can learn about future webinars on the Webinars and Courses page.
