Fall 2019 Faculty Hack-A-Thons

What is it?

 

The Fall Faculty Hack-A-Thons is a series of one-day annotation workshops for faculty that are hosted by our SEA-PHAGES SMART Team and expedited submitters. The goal of the Hack-A-Thons are to improve faculty annotation skills across the SEA and help everyone refresh their memories before they teach the bioinformatics component in the Spring. These small group, faculty-focused workshops will either work through the annotation of one genome from the genome exchange or will focus on a particular annotation topic. Along the way, faculty will be reoriented to SEA-PHAGES bioinformatics tools, the Online Guide, annotation submission guidelines, changes from previous years, and useful forums and resources on seaphages.org.

 

Who should attend?

 

We encourage all faculty that will be leading the bioinformatics course to attend at least one of these workshops. Teaching assistants are welcome if there is space. Cohort 12 faculty will soon attend a week-long in-depth bioinformatics training workshop. There will be some hack-a-thon sessions available as follow up for Cohort 12 trainees, but it’s not recommended to attend a Hack-A-Thon until after the workshop.

 

How to attend one?

 

These workshops will take place as in-person meetings, virtual meetings, or a combination of both. To attend one of these meetings, refer to the sign-up link below, which lists all the dates and locations for these meetings. Once all faculty have identified their top three choices, you will be contacted with additional details about the meetings. Food will be provided at in-person meetings, but travel to and from a meeting is at your own expense.

 

Please identify up to three workshops that you can attend, and rank your preference, by Sunday Oct 20, 2019.

Happy Annotating!
