Text Mining: Biofx Accelerates with Competition | GenomeWeb

When researchers involved in protein-shape prediction wanted to evaluate their abilities and limitations, they kicked off what is now known as CASP, the community-wide Critical Assessment of Techniques in Protein Structure Prediction.

Eight years, a 10-most-wanted list, and a David Baker later, CASP proved that the challenge model can move a field forward. Building on that, bioinformaticists have turned to the KDD Cup — Knowledge, Discovery, and Data-Mining — to assess their own community.
