This year, the DREAM conference is partnering with two related events in systems and regulatory biology in what promises to be a very exciting joint meeting. Our partners are the 5th Annual RECOMB Satellite on Regulatory Genomics and the 4th Annual RECOMB Satellite on Systems Biology. The joint conference on systems and regulatory biology will be held at MIT, in the Broad Institute, on Oct 29-Nov 2nd, 2008, between Wed at 5pm and Sun at 1pm.
For information on the joint conference, including invited speakers, venue, hotels, etc., please visit the site for the joint conferences of RECOMB Systems Biology/Regulatory Genomics/DREAM3
As in the previous DREAM conferences, DREAM3 will feature posters and oral presentations of papers accepted by our Program Committee. Besides this usual conference format, the DREAM3 Conference will feature the discussion of predictions of a set of four DREAM3 challenges. Each challenge is composed of one or more datasets which originated from a biological system or in-silico representation of a biological system that have some aspects unknown to the challenge participants. The predictors are invited to infer as best as possible the unknown data or underlying network associated with the challenge. The actual measurements and networks along with the results of the predictions will be disclosed at the conference.

A few rules
- Each participant or team of participants will choose a "Team Name".
- The Team Name cannot have blank spaces or special characters.
- Each team will be able to submit only one prediction per category.
- In order to download the data the participant has to register for the challenge. This registration is independent of the registration for the DREAM3 conference.
These datasets of Challenges 1-3 cannot be used for external publication without explicit permission from the data owners.
Step 1. Register your team for the challenge. Once you have registered your Team for the challenge, a password will be sent to the e-mail address you provided in the registration.
Step 2. Download the datasets. You will need to use the password provided in Step 1 above.
