Dr. +Andrew Su 's team at TSRI is hosting a BD2K / NoB hackathon May 7-9th 2015. This purpose of this hackathon is to bring together experts in their respective fields to collectively work on solving challenges related to biomedical big data. This hackathon will feature networking and mentoring with leading researchers and experts, hacking on exciting projects, prizes for the best contributions! (1st place: $500 and trophies), and delicious food (provided by Phil's BBQ, Bombay Coast, Regent's Pizza ...)

During this hackathon we will work on projects relating to any of the major challenges of biomedical big data, including:

Locating, gaining access to, standardizing, and documenting data, software tools, and APIs Developing effective, robust, reproducible and interoperable means of sharing data and software tools
Developing new methods for analysing biomedical big data
Training researchers for analysing biomedical big data

"Science is a story that is increasingly difficult for individuals to stay abreast of, because of both its complexity and its volume. There are over one million new biomedical research articles published every year (one every 30 seconds!), so the fraction of the literature that any single scientist can read is tiny. In this talk, I describe our vision for how citizen science can help organize scientific knowledge — including a live demonstration using the TEDx audience!"

I don't post much on my G+ account (most of my social media is at http://twitter.com/andrewsu), but we're trying to spread our #CitizenScience  ideas far and wide. My TEDx talk on this effort was just posted (embedded below).  Please share!

Unexpectedly great responses on Twitter on non-scientists immersing themselves in science because of a personal connection to disease.  Here is the storify...
