Interested in participating in Hackseq this year?

The hackathon will be over 3 days (Oct 20-22) at the Life Sciences Institute in UBC. We have already got some amazing projects proposed by team leads and they will be leading small groups (you) to solve their challenging and exciting genomics problem.

Our goal is to bring together a diverse set of individuals to catalyze innovative solutions to today’s biggest genomics problems. Any genomics enthusiast is welcome. Participation is free and we are offering free childcare! All pipelines and tools generated from hackseq will be made publicly available. And of course, there will be plenty of snacks, coffee, food, and night-time socials.
