Mining for synthetic biology - workshop and hackathon, 10-11 March, TGAC, Norwich

By Caroline Channing

The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) is holding a ContentMine Workshop & Hackathon on the theme of mining for synthetic biology on 10-11 March 2016 in Norwich.

Registration Deadline: 26 February 2016

Content mining technologies hold much potential for maximising scientific discovery and the reuse of research through automated searching, indexing and analysing of scientific literature. This workshop aims to educate and engage technologists and biologists who are interested in using mining technologies for synthetic biology to better enable access to research literature and data in plant synthetic biology.


Target Audience:

The workshop is best suited to biologists and bioinformaticians who have, to some degree, experience of using command line tools or at the very least enthusiasm to pick this up! As such, formal programming experience is not a requirement, but you may find it useful to attend the Software Carpentry Workshop being held at TGAC prior to this event. The two events are back-to-back in order to make accommodation and travel logistics easier for those that wish to attend both training events. For more information see here.



Basic prior knowledge of programming concepts. See what is covered in their Software Carpentry Workshop in case this might be useful for you to attend also. Please contact the organisers if you have any questions about this!
