Bionode and DNAdigest Hackday

July 9, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 5:30 pm

Free
hack day

From the volunteers and organisers of bionode.io and DNAdigest and with the support from Campus London comes a new hackday!

Genomic data access is difficult and time consuming, a real hurdle for advances in cancer and genetic diseases research. Our ambition is to build tools, which integrate with modern web apps and web technologies, and provide a smooth data access workflow to power the research hypothesis-testing and to maximise the research impact.

The plan for the day is simple – use node.js and bionode modules to fetch genomic datasets description from known data repositories across the world. We’ll start by looking at existent bionode modules (e.g., bionode-ncbi), understanding their architecture, how we use node.js streams, how the modules interact with other bionode components, etc.
