Event description

Description

DNA sequencing technology allow you to spit into a tube and get a readout of your genetic traits for just a couple hundred dollars. What's more -- the price is dropping rapidly. How does this apply to you and how can you take advantage of this?

DNA-personalize your app / service / product!

Our subjective experience of things, preferences, and behavior is influenced by our genes. Incorporating this aspect of user information will allow you to provide the most relevant and personalized experience for your current and future users.

What: Build your own DNA-personalized app using GENOME LINK API
Who: Developers and designers (limited to 50 participants)
Where: UC Berkeley SkyDeck (2150 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley, CA 94704)
When: March 10-11

What is GENOME LINK API?

GENOME LINK API is a developer-friendly tool designed to help you integrate user's DNA information into your app effortlessly -- without advanced requirements like genomics expertise and how to securely handle raw DNA data.

Genomics and intepreting genome data used to be stuff of scientists. But with the rapid rise of sequencing technology and APIs like GENOME LINK API, the opportunity to contribute to this exciting field has become wide open for developers. Our previous in-person hackathons in Tokyo and San Francisco have been a huge success. Read about the latest GENOME LINK Hackathon.
