Producing a new generation of highly computational natural scientists and tool builders able to apply novel approaches to tackle fundamental problems in natural science.

About 2020 Science

The emphasis of the 2020 Science programme is on producing a new generation of highly computational natural scientists and tool builders able to apply novel approaches to tackle fundamental problems in natural science. The scientific remit of the programme is broad, covering a wide range of challenging problems in the computational modelling of naturally occurring systems, spanning biology and medicine and ranging from molecules to systems to organisms to ecosystems, and the interaction of each with their environment (from extracellular environments at the molecular level to anthropogenic and earth system environments at the global scale).

First Paper Hackathon on Computational Life Sciences: How Did it Go?

Derek Groen and Joanna Lewis (both 2020 fellows) organised a Paper Hackathon event, with support from both the Software Sustainability Institute and 2020 Science. The highly ambitious goal was to write a scientific draft paper over the course of two and a half days within a highly informal setting. Did we manage to accomplish that? In many of the projects we did!
