This year, the scientific committee of CAMDA has set three data analysis contest challenges:
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 the severity of the drug induced liver injury in humans.
The Metagenomic Geolocation Challenge presents thousands of city microbiome profiles in the context of climate data. Construct multi-source microbiome fingerprints and predict the ecological niche or exact geographical origin of mystery samples.
Sitges has always been a place which has enchanted artists, tourists and visitors from all over the world. For many, the secret lies in its light and almost 300 days of sun that it enjoys every year, which attracted the painters, sculptors and writers who settled here at the end of the 19th century.
Nature has indeed been generous to Sitges with its setting in an outstanding location on the Mediterranean coast at the foot of the Garraf Massif. Its cultural heritage is extraordinary, with a lively art scene and its traditions are respected with a modern perspective. Sitges has preserved important features both from mediaeval times and from its history as an old fishing town, enabling visitors to enjoy a notable architectural heritage. Moreover, it is a cosmopolitan town which has attracted residents from more than 70 nations.
