**How can we increase reuse of existing public genomic datasets? **
DNAdigest is very happy to announce our Hack Day this month and we are
inviting you to a day of brainstorming, ideation and hacking for the
benefit of genetics research.
We are happy to welcome geneticists, bioinformatics, software developers
and anyone with an interest in public genomic dataset. A broader
perspective from participants will allow for innovative ideas and
A basic introduction to DNAdigest and our team will be given in the morning
and group workshops will follow in the afternoon.
The problems/topics we aim to address and solve are:
1. How can you make a data recommendation service that (based on data that
are co-cited in published papers) can recommend a dataset that you might
find interesting given a dataset you have used in the past?
2. How can you make a data recommendation service that (based on
metadata/descriptions of datasets) can recommend a dataset that you might
find interesting given a dataset that you have used in the past?
3. How do you make an automated alert system that lets you know when new
datasets in a repository (e.g. GEO) are available that match a given (group

What is the state of data access in genomics research? We did some research
to find out:
Read "Data barriers limit genetic diagnosis":
“Excellence can be achieved, if we:
Care more than others think is wise,
Risk more than others think is safe,
Dream more than others think is practical,
Expect more than others think is possible.”
