BOSTON: Nov 10, 2015 – Boston Children’s Hospital announced today at the Global Pediatric Innovation Summit + Awards the results of its international CLARITY Undiagnosed Challenge. In this genomics competition, 26 registered teams from seven countries sought to interpret DNA sequences and provide information to five families about conditions that had eluded diagnosis despite multiple doctor visits, tests and genetic studies.

CLARITY Undiagnosed is the second crowd-sourcing competition hosted by the Manton Center for Orphan Disease Research at Boston Children’s and the Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI) at Harvard Medical School. Submissions were evaluated by an independent,diverse panel of judges, including medical geneticists, computer scientists, bioinformaticians and clinical experts. Twenty-one of the original 26 teams ultimately completed the challenge.

 

First Place Team:

Nationwide Children’s Hospital (Columbus, OH), was awarded $25,000.

 

Runners Up:

Invitae Corporation (San Francisco) and Wuxi NextCODE Genomics (Cambridge, MA)
