In a week BioHackathon 2014 will start (http://www.biohackathon.org/). It will be my first time ins this kind of "meeting". I will give a talk about PRIDE and ProteomeXchange and future developments of both platforms (below the complete list of talks).
But first, a quick introduction of BioHackathon. National Bioscience Database Center (NBDC) and Database Center for Life Science (DBCLS) have been organizing annual BioHackathon since 2008, mainly focusing on standardization (ontologies, controlled vocabularies, metadata) and interoperability of bioinformatics data and web services for improving integration (semantic web, web services, data integration), preservation and utilization of databases in life sciences. This year, we will focus on the standardization and utilization of human genome information with Semantic Web technologies in addition to our previous efforts on semantic interoperability and standardization of bioinformatics data and Web services.
