Last call for applications (due March 4): Phylotastic! hackathon at NESCent (June 4 to 8)

Email I just got from Ariln Stoltzfus

Dear Colleague,

Hello. I’m writing to make sure you are aware of the opportunity provided by the Phylotastic! hackathon planned at NESCent in June, a week-long event that will bring together scientist-programmers to develop an open system that will democratize research access to the Tree of Life.

Below is the open call for participation– anyone can apply, and funding is available.

I would appreciate if you could forward this to anyone who might be interested in applying. We especially encourage women and members of traditionally under-represented minorities to apply. The online application takes about 15 minutes (deadline: March 4 at midnight EST).

Thanks for your time. With regards,

Arlin Stoltzfus

To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
