[ccp4bb] Scalable and Reproducible Structural Bioinformatics Workshop & Hackathon 2018

We are pleased to announce the second MMTF workshop:  Scalable and Reproducible Structural Bioinformatics Workshop & Hackathon 2018. This workshop will be held May 7 – 9, 2018 at the University of California, San Diego and hosted by the Structural Bioinformatics Laboratory at the San Diego Supercomputer Center.

Sponsorship This workshop is sponsored by the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative. Air travel and 4-day lodging can be provided for non-commercial participants, including a limited number of international participants. Applicants will be selected based on the best fit to the program on a rolling basis.

Apply now to secure your place in the workshop.


Application deadline: April 1, 2018.

This 3-day hands-on workshop and hackathon introduces you to:

·      Application of state-of-the-art Big Data technologies to Structural Bioinformatics

·      Data mining and machine learning

·      2D/3D visualization and deployment in Jupyter Notebooks


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 their own projects.


This workshop is aimed at graduate students, postdocs, staff, faculty, industrial researchers, and scientific software developers. Experience with Python is required.
