The hackathon phenomena is knocking on biology’s door. The first UK Biohackathon will be held at the University of Cambridge in June, to learn and create with SynBio.
Hackathons are massively popular events in computer programming, joining people during a short period to create a hands-on project. The concept has now spread to biology – more specifically to synthetic biology.
Put on by Cambridge University Technology and Enterprise Club (CUTEC), the first ever bio-focused hackathon will will take place June 21-26 at the University of Cambridge.
The biohackathon will join interdisciplinary teams of inventors, investors, researchers and entrepreneurs – competing to tackle the biggest challenges in biology.
After receiving their challenger, the teams will pitch their ideas on the final day at the annual Technology Ventures Conference (TVC),
