Eco-It Bio Hackathon is aimed to inspire the use of computer science in other disciplines, such as biology and statistics. The goal of the event is to create a simple app that solves our problem statements over the course of a weekend. We won't tell you what the problem statement is quite yet, but it will focus on sustainable ecology, data biology, molecular biology, and bio-education. This is your opportunity to show off if you are passionate about computer science or biology! Remember, no CS skills needed as we'll host workshops before "hacking"!
