On August 14-16, 2017, NCBI, with involvement from several NIH institutes, will host a Biomedical Data Science hackathon at the National Library of Medicine on the NIH campus. The hackathon will primarily focus on medical informatics, advanced bioinformatics analysis of next generation sequencing data and metadata. This event is for students, postdocs and investigators or other researchers already engaged in the use of medical informatics data or pipelines for genomic analyses from next generation sequencing data. However, there are projects available to other non-scientific developers, cybersecurity experts, mathematicians or librarians. The event is open to anyone selected for the hackathon who is able to travel to NIH.
