Biohackathon europe 2022

Paris, 7-11 November 2022

by Beatriz Serrano-Solano

AI4Life was present this year at the BioHackathon Europe 2022, which took place in November at Campus Des Berges de Seine, near Paris. Since 2018, ELIXIR Europe has been organising the BioHackathon to bring together both ELIXIR and non-ELIXIR members to work on projects aligned with the ELIXIR Platforms, Communities or Focus Groups.

The participation of AI4Life was focused on two projects:
Project 9: Disseminating FAIR Machine Learning Models via BioModels
Project 17: Metadata schemas supporting Linked Open Science (with a focus on reproducibility)

Through the interaction with these two projects, we explored the collaboration of the BioImage Model Zoo with databases like BioModels, by discussing the minimum metadata that would allow the interoperability between such resources. We also engaged with more initiatives like Bioschemas, the DOME recommendations, the EDAM ontology and the ELIXIR Machine Learning Focus Group.

We will be happy to continue these interactions, and we look forward to our future collaboration and participation in similar events.
