BioHackathon 2010

This is our 3rd BioHackathon for interpreting biological knowledge with Semantic Web technologies.

About the Hackathon

The hackathon (hacking + marathon) basically is a camp where invited participants discuss about current issues and implement software to solve the problems on site collaboratively. This kind of meeting is very effective for the intensive development of projects, because face-to-face meeting of developers, who are usually spread around the world, accelerates communication and collaboration to exchange their ideas.

BioHackathon 2010 is sponsored by the Database Center for Life Science ( DBCLS), and will be held in Tokyo, Japan.

The DBCLS is being accepted as a national center for the sustainable life science databases in Japan.
