Added by Ward Vandewege almost 8 years ago

On June 20th, 2013, Arvados was recognized by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy at its 'Open Science' Champions of Change event. After evaluating several hundred nominations, the OSTP had selected the Arvados Project as one of 12 posters to present at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

We’re psyched the OSTP honored the contribution to open science that is being made by the Arvados project. Genomics was featured prominently at the event, and the recognition that open source software will be a key foundation to open science efforts and personalized medicine was very cool.

The poster is available for download here.

Arvados was represented by three of us: Dr. Alexander Wait Zaranek, Ward Vandewege, and Jonathan Sheffi. Here are a few pictures of us at the White House:
