Challenge outline

Introduction

A hackathon is a software/hardware development ('hacking') marathon. Participants pitch their ideas, form teams and work together to find solutions before the deadline. At the end everyone shares their results and learns from each other.

Hackseq is a Vancouver-based hackathon focused on genomics. We want to bring individuals with diverse backgrounds together to collaborate on scientific questions and problems in genomics. Our philosophy is open-source, open-notebook, open science.

Participants

Hackseq is open to everyone with coding experience. The focus is on empowering students and trainees who want to use their skills and knowledge in a creative new way.
