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.

    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.

    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.
