Biohack is a competition in a form of hackathon within bioinformatics field. Competitors will form teams to take part in the first hackathon aimed for bioinformaticians/biologists/programmers/geneticists in Poland. Each of competing teams will receive genetic and phenotypic data gathered from all around the country. During BioHack Łódź 2018 sessions the teams will seek answers to real-world problems.
During Biohack Łódź 2018 hackathon you will:
form cross-functional teams(4-5 persons) bridging biology and informatics
be provided with an experienced mentor during the project
have a great time at our afterparty
Why should you participate in Biohack Łódź 2018 bioinformatics hackathon?
Work with interesting people making interesting projects
The Human genome and patient data with its’ local and regional variability are hugely underexplored. In the age of rapidly growing computational potential, at last, we are able to stand up to the challenge. Analyze increasing genomic data even faster. Come up with scientifically sound solutions.
Find a job in bioinformatics
BioHack will have a special platform to connect industry with new talent. You will have a chance to present yourself to regional and global leaders in the field, headhunters, meet and work with interesting people, and most of all to give it a try in fast-growing interdisciplinary area.
Get a prize
Three best projects will be awarded financial prizes, as well as there is an opportunity for the sponsors to endow particular project with a special individualized prize. Best solutions to given problems will be judged by the board of experts.
