The hackathon is open to everyone who is enthusiastic about creating personalized apps that change lives and, in turn, change the world. Users can register as individuals or as part of a team. Each team will create an app for iOS, Android, or the web utilizing the power of Microsoft Azure and Sequencing.com’s +RTP API. See more information >

“The focus of what we’re doing with Hack the Genome is really how you can take genomic data and add value to it as part of a cloud-based platform and a mobile experience,” explains Geralyn Miller, Director, Microsoft Genomics. “We want to get meaningful information, based on the genome, into people’s hands in a format to which they are accustomed.”

As space is limited, developers interested in competing are encouraged to register today.
