The theme of the hackathon is biology.

Our goal is to improve biological studies using technology, integrate biology studies with other disciplines such as computer science and statistics.

Basically, we'd like you to use your programming skills, knowledge of biology, and most importanly, your creativity, to build a symple app that solves one of our problem statements over the course of a weekend!

Our problem statements will focus on sustainable ecology, data biology, molecular biology, and bio-education! So in other words, basically everything biology is about! But for now, we will keep the problem statement secret.

If you are passionate about biology, or you are good at developing apps and coding, this is your opportunity to show off!
