The precisionFDA calls upon the scientific and analytics communities to develop innovative and user-friendly approaches to improve the understanding of the relationship between personalized immune repertoires and COVID disease-relevant phenomena and their associated external factors by accurate interpretation of rapidly shared datasets in public databases, such as iRECEPTOR Gateway. This precision immunology app-a-thon phase I will launch on Nov. 30, 2020 and end on Jan. 29, 2021. It comprises of two tracks: one for data scientists (immunology knowledge not required), and the other specifically designed for computationally immunologists. You are encouraged to participate in either or both track(s) to help our fight against COVID-19. Phase II is in planning stage that will task participants to create algorithms to incorporate the outputs from Phase I into clinically amenable formats. Please stay tuned for phase II details.
Challenge Start Date: November 30, 2020.
