Mosaic (https://www.mosaicbiome.com) is a cloud-based platform focused on microbiome informatics that aims to accelerate the improvement of methods in microbiome research through the administration of “Challenges”.
The second challenge, Mosaic Community Challenge: Strains #2, aims to evaluate the performance of computational tools in identifying known strains in metagenomic data. Participants of the Strains #2 challenge will contribute to the improvement of strain-level microbial analysis methods while testing tools in a secure and collaborative environment.
Join us Wednesday, February 21st, 10:30am PST (1:30pm EST) for an introduction to the Strains #2 challenge, and listen to the challenge sponsors discuss how you can participate and contribute to the improvement of strain-level microbial analysis.
