DREAM Submissions

Call for Papers for DREAM Conference Session and Poster

The DREAM Challenges are crowdsourcing challenges examining questions in biology and medicine.

The DREAM Challenges are an open science effort of crowdsourcing challenges to examine questions in biology and medicine. We are a non-profit, collaborative community effort with contributors from across the research spectrum including universities; technology companies like IBM Research; not for profits, like Sage Bionetworks; and biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. Since the beginning of the DREAM Challenges in 2006, we have been an innovator and leader in open science and crowdsourcing. The DREAM Challenge participants and organizers have numerous publications in top journals such as Science and Nature. Since the dawn of the DREAM Challenges, commercial crowdsourcing efforts have sprung up which utilize techniques that we pioneered.

We are excited to have 3 challenges underway and will be part of this year’s conference so look forward to presentations and posters from these challenge’s participants.



Malaria DREAM Challenge: An open innovation framework for discovery of anti-malarial drug combinations

The malaria parasite can quickly adapt to anti-malarial drugs resulting in drug resistance. Understanding the changing biology of malaria parasites as they acquire resistance may be key to preventing the spread of resistance. The goal of the Malaria DREAM challenge is to develop computational models that predict Artemisinin (Art) drug resistance level of a test set of malaria parasites using their in vitro transcription data and a training set consisting of published in vivo and unpublished in vitro transcriptomes.

Illuminating the Druggable Genome (IDG) Drug-Kinase Binding Prediction DREAM Challenge: Catalyzing compound-target interaction mapping

Round 1b of the IDG-DREAM Drug-Kinase Binding Prediction Challenge just ended and Round 2 will be opening to submissions on March 28th, 2019. In the upcoming round, participants are being asked to predict the binding affinity of a brand new set of drug-like molecules and kinases.
