Bio-IT World is proud to bring together innovative data scientists and developers from across the industry to solve real-world data challenges using the principles of Open Source & FAIR Data.

For the past three years, the Bio-IT World Hackathon has delivered a new level of collaboration to the annual Bio-IT World Conference & Expo in Boston. Our 2019 FAIR Data Hackathon, co-facilitated with leaders from the NCBI, brought together a record breaking 8 teams and over 100 participants to solve real data challenges.

The fourth annual Bio-IT Hackathon will again be co-facilitated with the NCBI and will continue in the tradition of uniting life science and IT teams to tackle actual bioinformatics projects with maximum impact potential. Projects at the event will feature either Open Source tools or some or all aspects of making data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable. All projects will be broadly applicable to the data science community.
