The National Cancer Institute in partnership with the Food and Drug Administration is pleased to announce the launch of the precisionFDA NCI-CPTAC Multi-Omics Challenge. The aim of this crowd-sourced, cloud-based data challenge is to incentivize the development and evaluation of novel computational algorithms that can accurately detect and correct mislabeled samples using rich multi-omics data. The challenge runs on the precisionFDA platform, with the ultimate goal of producing an open-source product that can be incorporated into a quality-management system to reduce mislabeling errors. An immediate outcome of the challenge is a flagship manuscript that highlights the challenge data, questions, design, and outcomes.

Join the precisionFDA NCI-CPTAC Mislabeling Challenge today.
