Abstract:

The Bioinformatics Challenge Days were two one-day events sponsored by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency DTRA and carried out by MIT Lincoln Laboratory in cooperation with Edgewood Chemical Biological Center ECBC. These events explored the utility of a short-term hack day format for educating interested individuals in bioinformatics issues relevant to the Department of Defense. They also explored to what extent these events could spark innovation in a diverse technical community that includes computer scientists, engineers, and biologists.
