I once again attended the European BioHackathon which took place in November outside of Paris. It was another intense week with 150 developers from across Europe (and beyond) working together on 34 topics.

Bioschemas was well represented in the topics and the hacking activities of the week. By the end of the week we had an approach for marking up Intrinsically Disordered Proteins and Rare Disease resources. We also had several resources with newly deployed or improved Bioschemas markup.

The slides below were presented at the final reporting session by the various projects that invovled Bioschemas.

For a fuller overview of the event and outcomes, please see the ELIXIR news item.
