Completed Event: October 13, 2019

From October 11-13, 2019, Baylor College of Medicine (HGSC) and the NCBI will organize a bioinformatics hackathon in Houston. Over the 3 days, teams of 5-7 people come together and work on interesting topics. Potential topics include:

1. Mapping structural variants to public databases

2. Calculating the heritability of different types of structural variants

3. CNV effect on isoform expression

4. Assembly accuracy for metagenomics

5. Quality assessment in large cohorts

We’re specifically looking for folks who have experience in working with structural variants, complex disease, precision medicine, and similar genomic analysis. If this describes you, please apply here: https://www.hgsc.bcm.edu/events/hackathon! Registration is free.

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 large scale genomic analyses from high-throughput experiments.
