Berkeley Lab played host to 31 neuroscience experts from across the country who came to participate in the fifth Neurodata Without Borders: Neurophysiology (NWB:N) project hackathon. The NWB:N consortium of researchers and foundations aims to break down obstacles to data use and sharing in neuroscience. The event was organized locally by Computing Sciences Area researchers Oliver Ruebel and Andrew Tritt, and Biosciences’ Kristofer Bouchard, a computational biologist in Biological Systems and Engineering (BSE). The trio also led the software development of NWB:N 2.0. Bouchard noted that the Lab’s leadership in NWB:N would not have been possible without the Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project BRAINformat: A Data Standardization Framework for Neuroscience Data.
