During the bioinformatics hackaton, participants prototyped three different projects. With a more biological focus, the first project looked at the Influence of long non coding RNAs on splicing. The second project centered on developing a system for producing automated tutorials for the Galaxy platform, while the third project focused on integrating an interactive genome browser into the Bioconductor computing environment.
Participants were encouraged to work on problems related to RNA bioinformatics, though other bioinformatics research problems were also welcome. There was no restriction on which programming languages or frameworks (such as galaxy) are used for development as long as developed tools are open source.
The event was for students, postdocs and investigators, who are already making and using bioinformatics tools.
