2015 DREAM Challenges, powered by Sage BionetworksDear Colleague,

We are pleased to update you on DREAM9.5 and DREAM10 Challenges.

 DREAM9.5 started in late 2014 and will continue in 2015. The DREAM10 Challenges have started in June 2015 and will continue through 2015. 

Best performers in the other DREAM9.5 and DREAM10 Challenges will be invited to present at the RECOMB/ISCB Conference on Regulatory and Systems Genomics, with DREAM Challenges (November 15-18, Philadephia, PA) with partial travel expenses covered by the organizers.
 We also worked with high impact journals to ensure that the methodology developed by the Challenges' best performers will be considered for publication under the challenge-assisted peer review format.
