  • MetaSUB Inter-City Challenge - [email protected]/ECCB

    Founded in 2015, the MetaSUB International Consortium aims to create the world's only longitudinal metagenomic map of mass-transit systems and other public spaces across the globe. While Global City Sampling Day covered over 40 locations, the consortium has partnered with CAMDA for the first-ever multi-city analysis, with an early release of New York City, Boston, and Sacramento exclusive to MetaSUB and CAMDA.

    Analysis suggestions:
    • Biological: Compare organism fingerprints from public places across cities. Investigate organism sequences and biodiversity vs location. How diverse is each city – in terms of the numbers of bacteria, eukaryotes, viruses, plasmids, and antimicrobial resistance markers (AMRs)? Can we determine if each city has a distinct AMR profile?
    • Technical: Which computational tools have the highest sensitivity and specificity for species detection?

    Submission Options

    There are two Submission Options:
    • Full methods research papers can be submitted to the regular ISMB Proceedings Track (note 26th of January ISMB Proceedings deadline!), specifying CAMDA as intended target audience.
    • Extended abstracts of late breaking methods research or analyses of the CAMDA challenge data sets can be submitted by the CAMDA submission deadline in May. Extended abstracts should include at least preliminary key results and figures. Based on the extended abstract, the scientific committee selects teams to present their work at the CAMDA conference, where updated results need to be shown.
