Multiple Myeloma DREAM Challenge
Opening January 2017
The Multiple Myeloma DREAM Challenge provides an opportunity to combine integration of large scale molecular and clinical data and state of the art analytical approaches to facilitate risk stratification in over 25,000 patients in the US alone. Additionally, it provides the ability to benchmark novel methods with the greatest potential to yield patient care benefits in the future.
ENCODE-DREAM in vivo Transcription Factor Binding Site Prediction Challenge
July 7, 2016 -January 11, 2017 (open)
The goal of this Challenge is to identify the best method for predicting in vivo transcription factor binding sites across cell types and tissues by integrating DNA sequence, RNA expression and chromatin accessibility data.
The Digital Mammography DREAM Challenge.
June 29, 2016- Feb. 20, 2017 (open)
With generous support from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation this $1.2 million Challenge, one of two large prize Coding4Cancer Challenges, seeks to improve the accuracy of breast cancer detection and reduce the current rate of patient callbacks.
Disease Module Identification DREAM Challenge
June 24- Oct. 3, 2016 (Now Closed)
The goal of this Challenge is to (1) systematically assess module identification methods on the latest molecular networks and (2) discover novel network modules/pathways underlying complex diseases.
ICGC-TCGA DREAM Somatic Mutation Calling RNA Challenge (SMC-RNA)
Summer 2016 (open)
Leaders from the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) and The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) have come together to develop a Challenge to assess the accuracy of methods to work with cancer RNA Sequencing data.
Artificial intelligence could finally help researchers tell a molecule’s odor from its structure. Light and sound are predictable. Smells are not. (Read more)
As part of Vice President Joe Biden’s $1 billion Cancer Moonshot initiative, hundreds of scientists and coders are attempting to improve the ability of mammograms to detect breast cancer. (Read more.)
Participants in the Digital Mammography DREAM Challenge are trying to do their part to contribute to the nationwide goal of completing 10 years of cancer research in half the time. It’s funded under the Cancer Moonshot’s Coding4Cancer initiative —pitting coding teams against each other in a friendly fight to see who can come up with the best way to improve mammogram readings.
