The Turing Centre deciphers the complexity and the dynamics of living systems

The first CENTURI Hackathon!

The event will take place from June 24 to June 26, 2022 at the CIRM, on the Luminy campus, in Marseille.

The CENTURI Hackathon is a fast-paced weekend of coding, engineering and idea-sharing to drive innovations at the interface of Computer Science and  Life Sciences. The event is aimed at developers, engineers and researchers, including students and postdocs, with experience in coding or computational approaches. Experts in biological and biomedical topics as well as mathematicians and non-scientific developers are encouraged to apply and lend their perspective to the project teams.
