TunedIT, a leading research platform in the area of data mining, encourages participation in the new competition launched at TunedIT Challenges platform. The competition, with a cash prize of $1,000 is organized by Simulations Plus , Inc., and affiliated with the top statistical and data mining conference, 2011 SIAM International Conference on Data Mining.
Prediction of Biological Properties of Molecules from Chemical Structure
The task is related to prediction of an important biological property of molecules from their chemical structures - a routine task in the domain of cheminformatics. The modeling dataset contains two classes of chemical molecules: one with and one without the said property. Using this dataset, contestants will build a binary classification model with the goal of classifying new molecules into the two classes.
A prize of 1,000 USD will be awarded to the winning group. After the contest, top solutions will be presented at the SIAM ICDM'11 Contest Workshop.
