BIOMOD Handbook Available

May 03, 2017

We are publishing a BIOMOD Handbook this year!

It is an English translation of the Japanese BIOMOD textbook, generously contributed by the authors of the Molecular Robotics Study Group (Murata, Tadakuma, Fujiwara, Hamada, Nomura, et al.). Sales proceeds will go to BIOMOD Foundation to cover translation costs.

Chapter 1 is now available, additional chapters will be released in the coming weeks. All BIOMOD students will receive a free copy with registration. Everyone else can get the book via this link:

Jamboree moved to Nov 4–5

April 16, 2017

For the past 5 months, we have been planning for BIOMOD 2017 to take place on October 28–29. However, that date may no longer work because a UCSF campus-wide event was just announced that takes priority over all existing auditorium bookings.

After exploring many alternatives, we have concluded that the best option is to reschedule the event for the following weekend: November 4–5th, 2017. Please see the Jamboree page for the latest information about this year’s deadlines and schedule

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and hope this change will not cause any problems for your team. However, if you wish to cancel your registration for a full refund, please let Shawn or Rebecca know by April 30th.

We also appreciate feedback about the dates — if this weekend turns out to work better than the prior weekend, we can keep a similar schedule next year.

Schedule and QuickGuide posted

The QuickGuide and Schedule are now posted on the Jamboree page!

Post your project website & video!

October 21, 2016

Make sure that your project website & video is in place by the deadline! The instructions are very simple: the final version of your team project website should be online and accessible. The website should embed or clearly link to the video so the judges can find it.

You do not need to submit anything via a form. Just have your primary contact visit your team’s profile page at 2016.biomod.net and make sure that the “Project Website URL” is correct.

If you used GitLab hosting, the URL was automatically populated for you several months ago, and the format will be something like http://biomod2016.gitlab.io/[teamurl]/. If your team set up a website elsewhere, you can specify a different URL.

We will review all URLs and contact your team if there is any problem loading your website before the judging period opens.

Good luck!
