Mosaic Community Challenge: Strains #1 is now closed. We're reviewing the results and will make them available to the submitters for review. Results will be made available to all participants in 3-4 weeks.

We have extended the Strains #1 Challenge to March 30th, so that participants may finish their work.

The Strains #1 Challenge had been extended until March 21st, 2018, 11:59pm Eastern Time.

After further analysis of the Real (Biological) Training Dataset, we have re-classified some genomes and removed those strains that did not engraft. Additionally, we have regenerated the Simulated High Complexity dataset in order to remove a strain with a fragmented reference genome that we indavertently included in the original dataset.

We have made some modifications to the Participation Rules based on feedback from early beta users.
