Event description

Description

Following the success of the ELIXIR Biohackathon 2018, and building on the Biohackathons organised by National Bioscience Database Center (NBDC) and Database Center for Life Science (DBCLS), we are running Biohackathon 2019 again in Paris on 18th-22th Nov 2019. We hope to build on our success and encourage more ELIXIR and non-ELIXIR participants to take part and also have industry engagement.

BioHackathon activities are driven by practical sessions where people gather, discuss, and implement ideas/projects during intensive and productive coding sessions. The topics will be aligned to challenges proposed by ELIXIR platforms (data, tools, compute, interoperability and training), ELIXIR communities (Human Data, Rare Diseases, Marine Metagenomics, Plant Science, Metabolomics and Proteomics), a selection of new tools and communities (e.g., Cytoscape and reproducible networks) proposed by ELIXIR France, and a set of common challenges proposed by the sister BioHackathon organised in Japan.

GOALS

  • Advance the development of an open-source infrastructure for data integration to accelerate scientific innovation focusing on technology implementations of FAIR, identifiers, metadata standards, ontologies and metadata catalogues that support the operations across ELIXIR Technical Platforms (Compute, Data, Interoperability, Tools, and Training)

  • Engage the technical people in the bioinformatics community inside and outside ELIXIR to work together on topics of common interest aligned to ELIXIR activities

  • Strengthen the interactions with ELIXIR Platforms and Communities to establish and reinforce collaborations through hands-on programming activities organised at the event.

BENEFITS

NEW DEVELOPMENTS

  • Prototypes, proof-of-concepts or drafts that can evolve later and be integrated into production (or could be identified as something that is better dismissed at that time)

EXISTING DEVELOPMENTS AND RESOURCES

  • Testing new versions

  • Gathering information on possible new features

  • Reaching new users and improving awareness

PERSONAL AND COMMUNITY BUILDING

  • Collaborative learning emerged from discussions with peers

  • Sharing interests that could bring people to organise or grow communities
