SoCal Hackathon 2019

We are pleased to announce the second installment of the SoCal Bioinformatics Hackathon.

From 9-11 January, 2019, the NCBI will help run a bioinformatics hackathon in Southern California hosted by the Computational Sciences Research Center at San Diego State University!  We are going to put a few hundred thousand metagenomic datasets on cloud infrastructure and identify known, taxonomically definable and novel viruses!  We’re specifically looking for folks who have experience in Computational Virus Hunting or Adjacent Fields! If this describes you, please apply! This event is for researchers, including students and postdocs, who are already engaged in the use of bioinformatics data or in the development of pipelines for virological analyses from high-throughput experiments. The event is open to anyone selected for the hackathon and willing to travel to SDSU (see below).
