In June 2021, the fourth Bioinformatics Contest – an international online programming competition – will be held. It is organized by Bioinformatics Institute in cooperation with ITMO University, Stepik, and Rosalind.
Participants will need to solve bioinformatics problems using programming and data analysis. The problems are based on real cases of analysis of sequences of DNA, RNA, proteins, and other related areas.
The Contest takes place entirely online and consists of two rounds: the one-week Qualification Round from June 12 to June 18 and the Final Round on June 26. The ultimate goal is to solve as many bioinformatics problems as possible within 24 hours. The winner will be the one who earns the highest score in the finals.
Every year the competition attracts more than three thousand bioinformaticians, computer scientists, and biologists worldwide.
Bioinformatics Contest 2021 is supported by JetBrains, Genotek, Yandex, and Serokell.
