Smile Greetings from the medical world!

Hello professionals and amateurs alike!

I have been here before but now returning as part of a team of people working on a competition platform for modeling in genomics (similar to Kaggle). My background is in medicine and I am currently in the clinical world most of the time but will soon be transitioning to a research environment. I have always been interested in genetics (almost went the academic route but due to logistic reasons ended up in clinical medicine). I was able to rediscover my passion for genetics/genomics after having moved to the United States. I came across a lot of challenges both personally and with resources available for people wishing to utilize data science in genomics during my exposure to the research world. This had lead me to realize the need for better educational tools and resource allocation services for scientists, clinicians, or enthusiasts.

Our small team at 2strand is in the process of testing a prototype at We plan to use the ultimate version of this product to help people use data science in genomics and support careers of aspiring bioinformaticians. We would like to get feedback from people here at any level of interest or experience in the field. Right now we are testing the most basic concept of a competition-based platform and are using open source software to carry out our first competition.

I would like to note that this is in no way an attempt to advertise for our product or service. We would appreciate honest and constructive feedback on the idea and implementation. We have laid out the current competition with monetary incentive so we can eventually drive traffic and see if people would be interested without prior knowledge of our product. You do not have to participate or be involved to give us feedback.

I would be glad to take criticism, comments, and/or advice. Please don't hesitate to get in touch through email!

Mohamed Samour
