DNA Sequencing

Jonathan Sobel, BeerDeCoded

Initially our project was a way to introduce cutting edge molecular biology techniques such as DNA sequencing to a large audience with a consumer product such as beer. We wanted to create the first tree of beers. Our goal was to create a new tool to help consumers to find their favourite beer. And potentiality, we hoped that our measurements could help brewers to develop new products.

For the BeerDecoded Challenge we hope to BREW:

  1. Brainstorm about the potential applications of Beer knowledge based on open access data (BtoB, BtoC)
  2. Re-analyse some beer data sets and produce a new open access data set about beers (recipes, brands, measurements, prices, breweries,... )
  3. Elucidate the Swiss beer market
  4. Work on a web interface to browse our Beer knowledge base.
