"RNA in medicine and empowering citizen scientists to invent medicine through Eterna"
Get ready for Eternacon 2016!
What Is Eternacon?
First hosted at Stanford University in 2015, Eternacon is a gathering of Eterna players, scientists, and developers. Originally somewhat of an inside joke among community members, the "Eterna Convention" was taken seriously by tomoedachii and vineetkosaraju, who then were able to put together a plan that would allow for the first Eternacon. In the past, during the conference we've had many different talks by participants about puzzle solving, scientific advancements, the community, and the future of Eterna as a whole, a tour of the lab, open discussion about the current state of eterna and make suggestions to the team, and the chance to get to know fellow Eterna players.
