  2. 2. http://www.biovis.net/2016/dream What is a DREAM Challenge?
  3. 3. http://www.biovis.net/2016/dream • http://dreamchallenges.org • DREAM Challenges pose fundamental questions about systems biology and translational medicine. • Vision: Allowing individuals and groups to collaborate openly so that the  “wisdom of the crowd” provides the greatest impact on science and human health. • DREAM was launched in 2006 by Gustavo Stolovitzky (IBM) in collaboration with Andrea Califano (Columbia University). Sage Bionetworks has been providing institutional support since 2013.
  4. 4. http://www.biovis.net/2016/dream What is the SMC-RNA DREAM Challenge?
  5. 5. http://www.biovis.net/2016/dream • https://www.synapse.org/#!Synapse:syn2813589/wiki/ 401435 • The challenge is to computationally predict gene/transcript fusions and transcript isoforms based on RNA-seq data. • This will yield many new tools and predictions for fusions and transcript isoforms.

  16. 16. http://www.biovis.net/2016/dream What are we looking for?
  17. 17. http://www.biovis.net/2016/dream • What exactly we are looking for will be announced later this summer. • We won’t have any preconceived notion about what we will accept as solutions. • It will be important that the solution can be used to enhance our understanding of biology. • It needs to be usable by a wide range of investigators.
  18. 18. http://www.biovis.net/2016/dream What is the time line?
  19. 19. http://www.biovis.net/2016/dream • Anticipated launch in Summer 2016. • Submissions in Fall/Winter 2016. • The visualization challenge will be synchronized with the SMC-RNA challenge (https://www.synapse.org/#! Synapse:syn2813589/wiki/401435) • Unlike past data contests, this challenge is decoupled from the BioVis meetings.
  20. 20. http://www.biovis.net/2016/dream What are the incentives?
  21. 21. http://www.biovis.net/2016/dream What we aim for (but no promises): • All participants will be invited as consortium co-authors on Challenge marker papers • Winners will receive speaking invitations at the next DREAM conference or a future BioVis meeting • New methods will be considered for co-publication with the Challenge marker papers by our publishing partner • Other rewards will be announced as they are determined.
