The NCBI will host a collaborative biodata science hackathon on the NIH Campus in Bethesda, Maryland!
We are now collecting project proposals focusing on building tools and pipelines for advanced analysis of biomedical datasets including text, images, next generation sequencing data, proteomics, and metadata. Proposals for tutorial pipelines and educational tools for advanced analysis are also welcome. We will choose five to eight proposals for the hackathon. We will create working groups of five to six individuals who have various backgrounds and applicable expertise to work on each project. Cloud infrastructure will also be provided to turn your idea into a working prototype. You can either choose to lead your project team or recommend someone. Otherwise, we will attempt to find a suitable team lead. The hackathon runs from 9 am - 5 pm each day with an optional social event on the evening of the second day.

Please feel free to contact Allissa Dillman allissa.dillman@nih.gov for further questions.

Question Title

* 1. Please tell us, in a short paragraph or two, about the project you are proposing

Question Title

* 2. Please give a short title for your project

Question Title

* 3. Why is this applicable to others in the community

Question Title

* 4. What is your name

At the hackathon the team leader will direct a group of 5-6 individuals in defining the project and having clear vision for developing a solution. To accomplish this goal the team lead's tasks include: defining and delegating tasks, incorporating team members’ ideas to accomplish the goal at stake, and ensuring success of the team. The team lead will need to be present for all three days of the hackathon. Participating as a team lead is a great way to gain leadership experience in a fast paced coding environment and having a team lead dramatically increases the probability that the project will be a go.

Question Title

* 6. Would you like to be the team lead for this project
