Event schedule

Prepare to Hack

All attendees will partake in an online collaborative conversation to map out the steps of a typical morphological profiling workflow. This will provide a basis for the hackathon.

Day before Hackathon

Those arriving in town early can spend the afternoon seeing Boston with other participants

Hackathon

  • Get to know the community: Introductions, motivations, and personal goals
  • Learn from peers: Seminars and tutorials from and for attendees including experts in gene expression and proteome profiling
  • Hack!: Groups will work through results, workflows, software tools, and code for specific steps of the workflow
  • Come together: Share knowledge and expertise, and, where possible, outline best practices
  • Create an impact: Document strengths, weaknesses, limitations, and appropriate usage of various alternatives at each step.
  • Leave with a plan: Plan for community-driven open source toolboxes for the various steps of morphological profiling

After the hackathon

We hope to leave with any of the following:

  • public wiki that outlines steps in a typical data analysis workflow for morphological profiling (complete with tips and tricks)
  • compilation of test data sets and ground truth for testing methods
  • plans for community-driven open source toolboxes for the various steps of morphological profiling
  • code that demonstrates different analysis options
  • plans for future events
  • The beginnings of long-term collaborations among members of the community
