Sunday, December 6th

With students returning back to school from Thanksgiving Break as well as the Nucleotide Hackathon submission deadline closing in fast, we have decided to give everyone the most amount of time to work on their projects. Thus, on Sunday (aka "Hack Day"), we will not be holding any formal events. However, you will be able to use our Discord and work on our projects. Enjoy!
