Submission Ideas & Office Hours Recaps

Coming up with an idea is half the battle in hackathons. We compiled ideas, examples, and tips from the NanoString team to help!

We asked the Office Hours hosts what they might build or what problem areas they see:

  • Nicole said, “I did think of this really fun project that you could use VR to traverse your slide landscape and show what genes were lighting up and where on the slide with fun graphics like fireworks. Very abstract and not entirely useful for analysis, but fun.”

  • Tyler said, “One of the challenges (and opportunities) we see in some of our GeoMx applications is merging of spatial data with expression data. I think computational biology and bioinformatics has focused on the complexities of DNA/RNA. But the integration of spatial components can lead to new biological insights that you might not have seen by looking at IF and gene expression separately.”

We can’t wait to see what you create!


If you have any questions about the hackathon, please post on the discussion forum.
