Don't know what BioJS is? BioJavaScript (BioJS) is an open source bioinformatics project that provides reusable JavaScript components for visualisation of biological data. The BioJS Conference directly precedes the Galaxy Community Conference.

The first day will focus on industry talks and short lightning 5-minute talks. Representatives from various SMEs and for-profit organisations will focus on understanding the needs, wants and limitations of BioJS' front-end interfaces applied to industry-based end-users. Will Spooner will be representing Eagle Genomics in the industry session. This is a must-attend event for companies wanting to understand how BioJS can help their organisation with integration of open-source tools for visualisation of biological datasets.

The second day is a Pizza & Code hackathon themed: Integrating BioJS into Galaxy. The hackathon is hosted together with DNADigest. It will be a day to show off your hardcore JavaScript developer skills by doing cool "Bio-hacking".

Register before 26th June 2015 to get a place.
