NRNB sponsors a variety of competitions for the communities around network biology tools. These competitions range from app development to bug bounties. Check out ongoing competitions and the results of past competitions below. Also feel free to suggest a competition.
1st - Thomas Kelder: The Food - Genomics - Disease landscape: A network linking food ingredients with human disease through underlying molecular interactions.
1st - Christos Vaitsis: Mapping of learning outcomes and teaching methods of one course in an undergraduate medical program.
2nd - Leandro Lima: Network of citations constructed using BioPython/PubMed API.
3rd - Steven Hallam: The image combines network analysis with single-cell genomic sequencing to infer metabolic interactions between uncultivated microbes inhabiting salt stratified Sakinaw Lake.
3rd - Sherilyn Bell: Using Cytoscape to visualize commercial personal DNA testing data such as chromosome start and end points, genetic distance, surnames etc.
1st - Roberto Mosca: The binary protein-protein interaction landscape of Escherichia coli. Cytoscape used to generate the networks.
Provide a “wizard” user interface for simple styles based on common data-driven visualizations to:
Use Oracle JavaFX packager for Cytoscape installers, which package the required version of Java with the application, thus cutting down on the amount of headscratching by users.
Implement edges with multiple sources and targets to allow for programmatic representation of more complex interactions. For example, they could be used to represent Gene-Protein-Reaction relationships without necessitating the introduction of Enzyme subunits.
