PRE-EVENT WORKSHOP- FAIR APP HACKATHON (free)

Scope and Objectives

The aim of this Hackathon is to raise awareness of the importance of and to demonstrate the advantages of making biomedical applications FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable).Creating fully portable FAIR applications will create a positive step change in a number of areas, mainly:
  • End-to-End Data Provenance
Definitively link all data derivatives to their data origin by introducing a unique and permanent descriptor of the process that generated the derivative data
  • Robust reproducibility of scientific findings
Uniquely identifiable and verifiable trusted application assemblies included in comprehensive metadata about the application run make each and every application run fully reproducible
  • Lower Cost per Insight
Drastically reduced development and maintenance costs coupled with much faster software deployment lead times through increased potential for automation, significantly reduce IT overheads and complexity

FAIR Apps Frame of Reference

The hackathon will have several teams compete in building FAIR Apps. The intent is to share ideas and to look for creative solutions as examples of the art-of-the-possible and their validation of objective outlined above.Criteria for a FAIR App
  1. Easy to build and use app
  2. Reusable on multiple data sets (different locations; different APIs) using FAIR data projection
  3. Portable app that can be run on different infrastructures without modification
  4. Generates rich metadata including full provenance
  5. Bonus points for interesting analysis topic

Hackathon Tooling and Facilitation

To focus the attendees on the issues and challenges to build FAIR Apps and to optimise the experimentation and illustrative results delivered, Databiology has kindly offered to provide the following support (if desired):Application Development Environment (CIAO)
  • Use of the Databiology’s CIAO toolkit, designed to build FAIR compliant Apps quickly and with ease.
Data Sets and Compute (Databiology Lab)
  • Access many pre-loaded, curated FAIR biomedical datasets, including
  • Genome in a Bottle (GIAB)
  • 1000 Genomes
  • Encode datasets
  • Human microbiome project
  • TCGA
  • Additional data sets can be loaded if requested in advance
  • Use Databiology Lab for free compute
Briefing / Training
  • Two pre-hackathon Webinars for training and orientation on FAIR Apps principles, tooling, and data sets

Competition and evaluation

Each team will present their app and results to a panel of judges. The judging panel will include::
  • John Wise – Pistoia Alliance
  • Alexandra Grebe de Barron – Bayer
  • Juan Caballero - Databiology
Each of our judges will assign a rating of 1-5 stars based on the following criteria:
  1. Fit: does your app fit the FAIR principles criteria?
  2. Portability: Is this a run anywhere app, can it be reused without refactoring?
  3. Metadata: Does the App generate reach metadata enabling provenance and reproducibility of results?
  4. Usefulness: Was the analysis that you ran using your FAIR app useful to the research community?
A prize will be awarded to the team assessed that have best embraced the concepts, principles and challenge and to have delivered and demonstrated a working solution that has both innovation and creativity.Should you have any enquiries please message:hackathon@databiology.com
