Cambridge Bioinformatics Hackathon

Monday 25 to Wednesday 27 September 2017

The Cambridge Bioinformatics Hackathon brings together programmers from the Cambridge area to work on bioinformatics or computational biology projects. This event aims to provide an opportunity for programmers to try new areas of work, meet and learn from other people as well as showcasing their skills to others in the community.

The Hackathon is open to any bioinformaticians or computational scientists, including students, PhDs and PIs. The event is also open to people working in companies.

Come up with an idea for a project that you think would benefit research.  Then, at the hackathon, put your idea into practice.

Any Life Science-related project should be suitable, we just request that within the three days you would be able to at least make a good start on a project of potential interest to others working in bioinformatics or computational biology.  You may work on your own or as part of a team and are free to program in any language you choose.  Tickets are £20 for the full 3 day event.

Event is held in Craik-Marshall Downing Site, Cambridge CB2 3AR
