DREAM8 Challenges Now Open - Submit your work to RECOMB/ISCB Regulatory & Systems Genomics Conference

DREAM8 Challenges are Now Open for Participation!  

During the "Challenge season" spanning from June 10 to September 15, 2013, Sage Bionetworks and DREAM will run the three Challenges described below.  
  1. HPN-DREAM Breast Cancer Network Inference Challenge - Infer the signaling networks in breast cancer cell lines
  2. NIEHS-NCATS-UNC DREAM Toxicogenetics Challenge – Predict individual response to environmental and pharmaceutical chemicals
  3. The Whole-Cell Parameter Estimation DREAM Challenge: Infer the kinetic parameters underlying biological processes in whole cell models
Best performers in the DREAM8 Challenges will be invited to present at the DREAM conference (November 8-12, Toronto, Canada) with travel expenses covered by the Sage/DREAM organizers.
