Call for Contributions - CAMDA 2019:
Deadline: May 12!
As a full conference track of ISMB/ECCB 2019, CAMDA puts a spotlight on the successful analysis and integration of the massive data sets now prevalent in the life sciences. This year, the CAMDA scientific committee offers three analysis contests:

  • The Metagenomic Forensics Challenge presents thousands of city microbiome profiles in a global context. Construct multi-source microbiome fingerprints and predict the geographical origin of mystery samples.
  • The Hi-Res Cancer Data Integration Challenge presents clinical and matched molecular profiles, with read level data for individual genomes. Explore non-standard genomes and splicing events for better prognosis.
  • The CMap Drug Safety Challenge presents clinical toxicity results, cellular and molecular responses to hundreds of drugs. Compare and integrate a range of cell line assays to predict drug induced liver injury in humans

Leading scientists present their best methods and analyses. Extended papers are then published in the open access, fully indexed conference proceedings at Biology Direct.
