CAMI metagenome assembly challenge closing soon!

Dear metagenome method developers,

The first submission deadline of CAMI, namely for submitting assembly
results of the raw read data sets is approaching (May 8, 2015).
Note that the deadline for submitting binning and profiling results
(both read or contig based) is June 19, 2015 and the contigs will
be provided as soon as the assembly challenge has ended!

We would like to get some feedback from you whether you are
participating in the assembly challenge and if you will be able to
submit on time.

All assemblies submitted before the deadline will be evaluated as
part of the challenge. If you cannot finish your analysis in time before
the deadline, you could also submit a Docker container only and we
will run the analysis with default parameters of your pipeline. If you
need help in building Docker containers for your assembly pipeline,
please let as know ASAP.

We also cordially invite you to the CAMI evaluation meeting in Berlin,
May 27–28, 2015. Mark the date and drop us a message if you would
like to attend and work with us on the final evaluation metrics and
become part of the CAMI team.

Please check the FAQ, mail or
tweet @CAMI_challenge with any feedback, questions or problems.
We're here to help!

We are looking forward to receiving your submissions!

The CAMI Team
