BIOME Biohackathon Registration
5:30 PM Friday, November 8th to 8:00 PM Saturday, November 9th
Shriram Center for Bioengineering and Biochemical Engineering
Open to Stanford students of any level/major!
BIOME’s Biohackathon is an event for Stanford students to work on 24-hour bioscience-related projects with access to the tools and resources of the Uytengsu Teaching Lab. These projects can encompass wetware (biology and bioengineering), hardware (mechanical and electrical engineering), software (computer science), and peopleware (ethics, education, and policy); they can address one of the challenges posed by an outside organization, or they can be an independent project from your own interest. Winners will receive cash prizes for their work.
Beginners and first-time hackers are more than welcome and encouraged to come!
If you have any questions or want more info, please contact BIOME Execs at
Users of the Uytengsu Teaching Lab space are required to complete the necessary safety training and Uytengsu Lab Safety Form. This is not required for the hackathon, but must be done if you are to become a frequent user of the space. Follow the link below and complete the safety form (select BIOME as your club). If you haven't already completed the trainings listed on the form, you must go to STARS training on Axess and click through the relevant online courses.
What types of projects would you be most interested in?
Do you already have a team that you plan to work with?
Teams should be about 3-4 people. If you don't have a team, we'll help you find one at the event!
Do you already have a project in mind?
We'll have plenty of time for brainstorming projects at the event, but you can come with your own idea as well.
If you have a project in mind, what reagents/supplies will you need us to provide for you to complete your project?
We'll do what we can to get you what you need by the day of the event. Example requests can be pieces of hardware (e.g. Arduinos, cameras, sensors) or biological (e.g. BSL-1 organisms, DNA primers).
If you have a project in mind, are you open to other hackers joining your project?
Send me a copy of my responses.
