For three days developers will work on new features of interest to their research communities, will be able to improve on existent Apollo & JBrowse features, and will collaborate in the development of features of interest to other colleagues.
- if you have great ideas for features even though you are not a developer, please let us know. We will be sure to include your thoughts, and, space-permitting, you may still be able to join us!
What will we do during the hackathon?: 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 other comments to the Apollo Developers email at: apollo-dev @ lists.lbl.gov
