Virtual AMR Codeathon

September 23 - September 27

Virtual Event Virtual Event

The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) is joining forces with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to co-host a virtual codeathon, Resistance is Futile: A codeathon to combat antimicrobial resistance, which will take place September 23-27, 2024.

This event is an opportunity to explore the National Database of Antibiotic Resistant Organisms (NDARO) and related AMR data with NCBI Pathogen Detection tools, such as the Isolates, MicroBIGG-E, and Antibiotic Susceptibility Test (AST) Browsers to identify additional data that may be useful for your project. 

During the week-long codeathon, you will collaborate with your team to accomplish the following objectives: 

  • Identify loss-of-function genetic variations that contribute to AMR.
  • Find and classify mobile genetic elements that contribute to AMR in draft genomes. Note: This work could integrate sequence data with epidemiological, transmission, and antibiotic sensitivity testing data to identify patterns and directions of co-migrating of AMR genes or plasmids.
  • Elucidate AMR biomarkers for historically hard-to-predict bacterial species (e.g., Acinetobacter, Pseudomonas).

Learn more at the NCBI’s Virtual AMR Codeathon website. Applications are due by 28 July.
