Announcing a new challenge on metagenomics diagnosis for IBD

We have exciting news!

The Metagenomics Diagnosis for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) challenge will soon open!

This Challenge aims to investigate the diagnostic potential of metagenomics data to discriminate patients with IBD including ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) from non-IBD subjects, or within IBD subjects, separating UC and CD subjects.

 

More specifically, the scientific questions that we challenge you to solve are the following:

  • Which predictive computational approach/model is the most accurate to classify subjects as IBD vs non-IBD or CD vs UC?
  • What do the most discriminative metagenomics features tell us?
    Are these features rather based on taxonomy, pathways and/or other types, e.g., k-mers?
    Are they distinct between UC and CD or do they show commonalities?
