Bringing Structure to Biology
A successful Hackathon with BioExcel partners
Last month we hosted a hackathon event where BioExcel developers joined members of the PDBe team to tackle problems related to programmatic access of PDB data. In addition to helping the BioExcel partners to answer questions by using the PDBe REST API, our team also introduce them to a new graph database that is being developed at PDBe. This hackathon gave us the opportunity to test many of the features of this new database but also enabled the attendees to obtain a greater wealth of data in a more accessible way.
The partners that attended the course have written a blog post sharing their insights about the event and their experience of using PDBe services to access data programmatically.
