Event Name

Structural Bioinformatics Training Workshop & Hackathon 2017

Start Date 26th Jun 2017
End Date 28th Jun 2017

Application of Big Data Technology and 3D Visualization

This 3-day hands-on workshop introduces participants to the development of fast and scalable structural bioinformatics methods using state-of-the-art Big Data technologies and Web-GL 3D visualization. The first two days of the workshop combine lectures, hands-on applications, and programming sessions. On the third day participants apply the new technologies to theirown projects.

This workshop is held at the University of California, San Diego and hostedby the Structural Bioinformatics Laboratory at SDSC in collaboration with the RCSB Protein Data Bank.


This workshop is sponsored by the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative. Air travel and 4-day lodging will be provided for non-commercial participants, including a limited number of international participants. Apply now to secure your place in the workshop. Participants will be selected based on the best fit to the program. Application deadline: April 30, 2017.

Target Audience

The workshop is aimed at graduate students, postdocs, staff, faculty, industrial researchers, and scientific software developers who develop software for Structural Bioinformatics applications. Intermediate to advanced programming skills in high-level languages are required (Java, JavaScript, Python, C++).
