Nach seeeeeeehr langer Zeit melden wir uns mal wieder im „alten Format“ mit einer Classic-Episode zurück. Ja, die Situation rund um Corona hat uns einiges abverlangt und einiges an Energie gefressen die normalerweise auch in dieses Projekt geht. Und so geht’s in dieser Episode auch um genau diesen Elefanten im Raum. Wir blicken aber auch auf die News, die … nun ja, so richtig keine mehr sind. Wir stellen uns also auch die Frage wie sich solche Entwicklungen auf unseren Podcast, das Format und die „News“ auswirken. Viel Spaß!
With the current situation around the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are several initiatives pushing forward to help finding solutions to successfully fight the virus. The global bioinformatics community is pushing its own efforts and organized the virtual COVID-19 Biohackathon. Starting today, contributors are invited to virtually work together on multiple topics and share their results openly via Github.
„The goal of COVID-19-BH20 is to create a cohesive effort and work on tooling for COVID-19 analysis. The biohackathon will lead to more readily accessible data, protocols, detection kits, protein predictions etc. We will also push for policy change where it comes to non-public or hard to access data because we are facing such challenges!“
Konrad had the chance to talk to one of the organizers, Leyla Jael Garcia-Castro, about the idea and implementation of this endeavor. Enjoy!
