Are You Up for a Microbiome Challenge?

Dec. 11, 2017

Contribute to the improvement of strain-level microbial profiling methods while also testing industry or proprietary tools in a secure and collaborative environment.

Calling all microbiome researchers! DNAnexus, with the support of the Janssen Human Microbiome Institute, is hosting the the Mosaic Community Challenge: Strains now through Feb. 28, 2018. Take part in a community effort to advance computational data analyses capabilities while also testing and refining your tools and applications.

The first challenge, Strains, will focus on advancing strain-level identification and relative quantification of microbes in a sample — a key step to advancing the field.

The AGA Center for Gut Microbiome Research and Education encourages participation in this challenge by AGA members and the broader GI community. Learn more about the challenge and join today at mosaicbiome.com
