4th Annual Data Science Hackathon

This is a past event.

The Informatics Institute and the Center for Computational Genomics and Data Sciences announces a call for participation in the 4th Annual Data Science Hackathon! This year's theme is Hackin’ Omics, which focuses on a multi-omics downstream analysis for discovery of novel translational findings and development of new tools using existing public datasets.

The Hackathon will take place over the course of two days, August 5th and 6th, and participants will have the opportunity to receive offered training by world-renowned scientists in UAB’s Informatics Institute, CGDS, U-BRITE, and Research Computing.

This year’s event will bring together biomedical researchers, bioinformaticians, scientists, software developers, and computer engineers from around the world. And the best part about this event? There’s no prior programming experience required! Whether you are a student, principal investigator, post-doc, or clinician, we encourage everyone to come and participate! 

Registration is currently open, but will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Spots are currently filling up quickly, and the deadline to register as a participant or submit project proposals is July 21, 2022. To register for the event, please go to Registration – U-BRITE Hackathon (ubrite.org)

We intend for this year's event to broaden the collaborative community at UAB and abroad, while enabling teams to achieve outcomes such as scripted pipelines, tutorials, tools, and novel omics analyses.

Saturday, August 6 at 9:00am to 5:00pm
