Reminder! We are less than one month out from the NCTR Indel Calling from Oncopanel Sequencing Data Challenge submission deadline! There’s still time to join the challenge.
This challenge is being hosted in collaboration with the FDA’s National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR) and is taking part in two phases.
Phase 1 of the challenge will run through July 8th and Phase 2 will run from July 11th-July 26th.
The primary goal of this challenge is to encourage the bioinformatics community to develop, validate, and benchmark indel calling pipelines to identify indels in oncopanel sequencing datasets. Given the widely recognized impact of indels on protein coding and function, it is crucial that the tools for indel-calling be rigorously evaluated and optimized.
Winners of the challenge will be publicly recognized and invited to contribute to a manuscript and a webinar describing the challenge and their submission results. Visit the challenge site below to get started or to submit your results!
