PrecisionFDA
CDRH Biothreat Challenge


Provide challenge data sets and reference standards for performance comparison of bioinformatics tools used in the biothreat and infectious disease NGS diagnostics community. The focus of this challenge is to enable tool developers to test their algorithms on blinded mock-clinical and in silico metagenomics samples using provided regulatory-grade reference genomes from the FDA-ARGOS database. This will enable the community to look at bioinformatics pipeline performance using a fixed reference genome data standard. The challenge will help familiarize precisionFDA users with the agency’s innovative FDA-ARGOS database resource (www.fda.gov/argos).

NCI-CPTAC Multi-omics Enabled Sample Mislabeling Correction Challenge - Subchallenge 1


Sample mislabeling (accidental swapping of patient samples) or data mislabeling (accidental swapping of patient omics data) is known to be one of the obstacles in basic and translational research because this accidental swapping contributes to irreproducible results and invalid conclusions. The objective of this challenge is to encourage development and evaluation of computational algorithms that can accurately detect and correct mislabeled samples using rich multi-omics datasets.
