hackseq is a Vancouver-based hackathon focused on open [*]omics. We want to bring individuals with diverse backgrounds together to collaborate on scientific questions and problems.
Our philosophy is open-source, open-notebook, open science.
A Hack-athon is a software/hardware development ('hacking') marathon.
Participants pitch ideas, form teams and work together to find solutions before the deadline.
At the end everyone shares their results and celebrates.
