[Challenge] Identify new metagenomics diagnosis for inflammatory bowel disease and takkle the prize-pool of $12,000

The Metagenomics Diagnosis for Inflammatory Bowel Disease Challenge aims to investigate the diagnostic potential of metagenomics data to discriminate patients with IBD including UC and CD from non-IBD subjects, or within IBD subjects, separating UC and CD subjects.

This challenge is directed towards finding the best classification algorithm that can be used in diagnosing Inflammatory Bowel Disease with data obtained from non-invasive clinical samples, and it comes with a prize-pool of $12,000.

The best performers will have the opportunity to collaborate with biologists and data scientists on the publication of the findings from the challenge in peer-reviewed journals.
