    Database Center for Life Science BioHackathon 2017 Symposium
  2. Reproducibility: still problem from the slides of ISMB/ECCB 2013 Keynote

    by Prof. Carole Goble
  3. More reproduciblity = less humanity

  4. Experimental protocols for automation should be in a machine readable

    format without ambiguity executable by both machines and humans
  5. What we did #biohack14, #biohack15, #BLAH15, #biohack16, #BLAH16 Jean‑Luc, Alex,

    Olga, Erick, and me discussion and development of linked data model Protocols as Document Executable workflow Populating examples and use cases Collaboration with RBI, a company developing biological experiment automation robot Publication: Robotic crowd biology with Maholo LabDroids doi:10.1038/nbt.3758
  6. What we will do #biohack17 Brush up the model through

    populating examples Tranalation from existing protocols to linked data Human readable && Machine readable Write markdown, convert to linked data‑protocols Biological sample to article figure in one click connect biological experiment to data analysis pipeline Common Workflow Language
