Main focus of the BioHackathon this year is evaluation of existing systems and preparation of Linked Data to develop domain specific biomedical applications based on the Semantic Web technologies.

Topics may cover the following domains, but are not limited to:

  • Standardization efforts of metadata and web services
  • Development of ontologies and web applications
  • Design of domain specific Linked Data (e.g. genome informatics, glycoinformatics)
  • Natural language processing to extract knowledge from literature
  • Triple stores and distributed SPARQL queries

During the hackathon, group activities will be recorded in a Wiki site. Please create sub-categorized pages and log your activities as much as possible.
