Event description

Description

This is a hackathon for developers interested in contributing to the advancement of Apollo and JBrowse. During the 3 days of the Hackathon you will be able to develop cool, new features that are both of special interest to you, and/or have been submitted by other colleagues.

Participants should:

  • be able to set up your own Apollo server before arriving to La Jolla; including Postgres, Tomcat, etc.
  • code comfortably in JavaScript (client) and Java (server).


What will we do while we are there?: The plan is still brewing, but we have a few ideas:

  • Interactive tracks for visualization of aggregated variant data, including background population statistics, which will enable researchers to annotate the impact of variants including associations with human disease phenotypes.
  • Exploration of synergies with the myvariant.info tool: a BD2K-supported software tool for aggregating annotations on human genetic variants from a variety of databases (ClinVar, exac, dbsnp, dbnsfp, etc.)
  • Visualization of protein modification data overlaid on gene models. Using data available from http://www.ebi.ac.uk/pride/archive/ to understand the impact of variants on these sites.
  • Creating a plugin to design CRISPR experiments.
  • Your ideas go here! - Please send your suggestions for feature development, your questions, and any additional comments to the Apollo Developers email list (see Hackathon URL below).


Lunches, snacks, and prizes will be inlcuded.
