NBDC/DBCLS BioHackathon 2014 will be held in Tohoku Medical Megabank in Sendai and hotel Taikanso in Matsushima, Miyagi, Japan.
Tohoku region including Miyagi prefecture was severely damaged by the megathrust earthquake and tsunami in 2011. As one of the reconstruction plans, Tohoku Medical Megabank Organization was founded for rebuilding the community medical system by developing a biobank that combines medical and genome information for supporting health and welfare in the Tohoku area.
Thus this year, we will focus on the standardization and utilization of human genome information with Semantic Web technologies in addition to our previous efforts on semantic interoperability and standardization of bioinformatics data and Web services. (read more about the past hackathons...)
