RSG with DREAM 2019 | November 4-6, 2019 | New York, USA |Top 10 Reading Papers, 2017-2018


As in previous years, we are again planning to assemble a "top 10 papers reading list" in Regulatory and Systems Genomics. Our goal is to identify seminal papers that introduced not only new biological insights, but also key computational methodologies for interpreting biological datasets that we except to have a lasting impact in the field of Computational Regulatory and Systems Genomics. Relevant areas include Motifs, Grammars, Networks, Systems, Variation, Disease, Personal Genomics, GWAS interpretation, Regulatory Evolution, Comparative Genomics, Epigenomics, Physical Modeling, Dataset Integration, Splicing Regulation, Transcriptional Regulation, and all areas of gene and genome regulation at the systems level.

Based on feedback from the community, we modified the format and the timeline of the competition in order to encourage more participation, focus on the papers that are most relevant to our community, and remove any perceived biases during the nomination and voting processing.

The new nomination process is as follows:

  • Authors are asked to nominate their own papers using the nomination form available Here . An author can nominate at most 1 paper. (Please note that during the voting process the nominators will be asked to vote for 5 papers on which they are not authors, in order for their nominated paper to continue to be eligible for this competition. Please use the same email address for nomination and voting.)
  • The deadline for nominations is August 1, 2019.
  • Papers published between Sep 1, 2017 to Dec 31, 2018 are eligible for this year’s competition, as long as the work described in the paper has been presented orally (i.e. selected for platform presentation from the submitted abstracts) at either RegSys at ISMB or RECOMB/ISCB RegSys in 2016, 2017, or 2018. Abstracts selected for short 1-min poster talks are not eligible.

Voting will start on August 2, 2019 and will be open until November 4, 2019 (the first day of the 2019 RECOMB/ISCB RegSys meeting).  Winners will be announced on the last day of the 2019 RECOMB/ISCB RegSys meeting.

We note that if less 25 nominations are received, then we will not move on to the voting phase. So please also encourage your colleagues and collaborators to nominate their papers for the competition.
