  • What are the aims?
    To bring together programmers from the Cambridge area to work on bioinformatics or computational biology projects.  This should provide an opportunity for programmers to try new areas of work, meet and learn from other people as well as showcasing their skills to others in the community.
  • Am I eligible?
    The Hackathon is open to anyone, including students, PhDs and PIs.  The event is also open to people working in companies.
  • What should I work on?
    Come up with an idea for a project that you think would benefit research.  Then, at the hackathon, put your idea into practice.
    Any Life Science-related project should be suitable. You may work on your own or as part of a team and are free to program in any language you choose.
  • How much does it cost?
    £20, for all three days (and a Hackathon T-shirt).

Please visit the CASIM website to enrol.
