The journals Human Genetics and Human Genomics jointly invite contributions that report on the 6th edition of the Critical Assessment of Genome Interpretation (CAGI). The papers will be published in a special collection embodying manuscripts from both journals. Submissions may include challenge assessment reports, descriptions of challenge datasets, original characterizations of methods and their performance in CAGI, as well as manuscripts about ethical considerations and works regarding future perspectives and policy. Contributions should have the breath of impact typical for these journals.
CAGI aims to establish the state of the art in the field of interpreting genomic variation. CAGI conducts periodic experiments with blind prediction, rigorous assessment, and extensive dissemination of outcomes. CAGI recognizes the best prediction methodology strategies, highlighting innovation and identifying bottlenecks that prevent the field from advancing. For the user community, CAGI offers trustworthy information about the most appropriate methods for a particular research or clinical application, and the best way to use the methods.
