CAMI Survey
The interpretation of metagenomes relies on sophisticated computational approaches such as short read assembly, binning and taxonomic classification. All subsequent analyses can only be as meaningful as the outcome of these initial data processing methods.

The CAMI initiative is aiming at the “Critical Assessment of Metagenome Interpretation”. Its goal is to evaluate methods in metagenomics independently, comprehensively and without bias.

Do you have enough resources to process up to 120Gbp of sequence data? *
(If not, we can provide limited resources for running your tool on the CAMI data sets. (See FAQ at
Reference Databases
To ensure reproducibility of results submitted to the CAMI challenge, we will provide reference data sets participants are encouraged to use. We will provide a snapshot of public datasets which participants can download and use in their analyses.
Would you be able to use reference databases provided by CAMI? *
Please choose which dataset(s) you would need to run your analysis *
Custom database size:
If you need custom databases for your analyses, we will ask you to upload the databases together with you results. How large do you expect your databases to be?
Your answer
Availability of Pipelines
To ensure availability of analysis pipelines, we are asking participants to upload their analysis tools/pipelines as Docker containers together with their analysis results. This will enable us to reproduce all of the results we retrieve. Additionally, we can make the Docker containers available to the community to run additional analyses.
Do you have any experience with Docker? (see *
Never used
Would you be willing to invest extra time to submit your pipeline as a Docker container? *
