ENCODE Imputation Challenge

The NIH ENCODE Consortium announces a machine learning challenge to predict the outcome of various types of genomic experiments, measuring diverse properties of the human genome in many cell types. The challenge will be carried out in parallel with ENCODE’s data generation efforts, thereby allowing truly prospective validation. Register at https://www.encodeproject.org/encodeimpute.


Submit Applications!
The May Institute on Computation and Statistics for Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics, taking place on April 29 – May 10, 2019 on campus of Northeastern University in Boston MA, is accepting applications. The Institute combines keynote presentations, introductory lectures, practical training, and informal personal discussions. Instructors are leading experts, who contributed numerous experimental and computational methods and software. Participants will have many opportunities to ask questions, and will be able to present their research. The application deadline is January 31, 2019. Tuition fee wavers and travel fellowships will be available for students and postdocs affiliated with academic institutions in the US. More information at https://computationalproteomics.ccis.northeastern.edu/.

NIH Seeks Public Comment on Proposed Provisions for a Future Draft Data Management and Sharing Policy

On October 10, 2018, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued a Request for Information (RFI) in the NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts to solicit public input on proposed key provisions that could serve as the foundation for a future NIH policy for data management and sharing. The feedback we obtain will help to inform the development of a draft NIH policy for data management and sharing, which is expected to be released for an additional public comment period upon its development. Comments on the proposed key provisions will be accepted through December 10, 2018.
