The hackathon will include two main strands:
- Biosoftware description using bio.tools and schema.org
- Deployment of bioinformatics tools and services through Docker
The first strand will provide a forum for knowledge exchange, technical discussions and hacking on the ELIXIR Tools & Data Services Registry (bio.tools) and the bioschemas project (bioschemas.org), with a focus on extending schema.org for bioinformatics tools in a way that is compatible with bio.tools. The second strand will discuss Docker and Galaxy integration.
The event is hosted by ELIXIR Italy and takes place at the headquarters of the Italian National Research Council, Piazzale Aldo Moro 7, Rome, Italy.
