Allen Institute Cell Lineage Reconstruction DREAM Challenge
Registration Opens: September, 2019
Launch: Mid-October, 2019 (Now Open)
Final Submissions: January, 2020
Winners Announced: March, 2020
CRISPR-based molecular tools allow the reconstruction of cell lineages based on the phylogenetic analysis of DNA mutations induced by CRISPR during development. The challenge – a partnership between The Allen Institute and DREAM – will comprise 3 subchallenges focused on reconstructing cell lineage trees of different sizes and nature. Through the usage for training purposes of experimental and in silico generated data sets, the goal of this challenge is to mobilize a larger community for evaluating new optimal tree-building methods.
