This year’s VAST Challenge focuses on visual analytics applications for both large scale situation analysis and cyber security. We have two mini-challenges to test your analytical skills and confound your visual analytics applications. In the first mini-challenge, (the imaginary) BankWorld's largest...

The VAST 2010 Challenge consisted of three mini-challenges (MC) and one Grand Challenge (GC). Each MC had a data set, instructions and a number of questions to be answered. The GC required participants to pull together information from all three data sets and write a debrief summarizing the...

The VAST 2009 Challenge scenario concerned a fictitious, cyber security event. An employee leaked important information from an embassy to a criminal organization. Participants were asked to discover the identity ofthe employee and the structure of the criminal organization. Participants were...

Omics-LHV, West Nile Experiment WLN002 The purpose of this West Nile experiment was to obtain serum samples for transcriptome analysis in mouse popliteal draining lymph nodes (DLN) infected with wild-type West Nile virus (WNV; WNV-NY99 382), and mutant WNV-E218A (WNV-NY99 382 E218A 2 nt). Overall...

Influenza A Experiment IM103 The purpose of this experiment was to evaluate the host response to wild-type Influenza A/Vietnam/1203/2004 (H5N1; "VN1203") virus infection and mock infection. Sample data was obtained for mouse lung tissue for mRNA, miRNA, proteomics, lipidomics, and metabolomics...

Influenza A virus Experiment IM102 The purpose of this experiment was to evaluate the mouse host response to wild-type Influenza A/Anhui/1/2013 (H7N9; "AH1-WT") virus and mutant viruses NS1-103F/106M ("AH1-F/M") and partially ferret-adapted ("AH1-691") infection. Sample data was obtained from mouse...

Influenza A Experiment IM101 The purpose of this experiment was to evaluate the host mouse response to wild-type Influenza A/Vietnam/1203/2004 (H5N1) virus, Influenza A/California/04/2009 (H1N1) virus, and Influenza A/Vietnam/1203/2004 (H5N1, "PB2-627E", NS1trunc124) infection. Sample data was...

Influenza A Experiment ICL104 The purpose of this experiment was to evaluate the host response to Influenza A pandemic wild-type H1N1 (A/California/04/2009), natural isolate virus. Sample data was obtained from human lung adenocarcinoma cells (Calu-3) with wild-type H1N1 virus (A/California/04/2009)...

Influenza A Experiment ICL103 The purpose of this experiment was to evaluate the human host response to Influenza A wild-type (H5N1) virus and mutant viruses. Sample data was obtained for human lung adenocarcinoma cell line (Calu-3) infected with WT Influenza A/Vietnam/1203/2004 (H5N1, VN1203) and...

Influenza A virus Experiment ICL102 The purpose of this experiment was to evaluate the human host cellular response to wild-type Influenza A/Anhui/1/2013 (H7N9; "AH1-WT") virus and mutant viruses NS1-L103F/I106M ("AH1-F/M") and partially ferret-adapted ("AH1-691") infection. Sample data was obtained...

Ebola Experiment EU937001 The purpose of this experiment was to evaluate the human host response to Zaire Ebola wild-type virus and mutant virus infection. Samples were obtained from human histiocytic lymphoma cells (U937), expressing the Ebola VP30 protein, infected with wild-type Zaire Ebola (in...

Ebola Experiment EIHH002 Processed Omics Data Unavailable This experiment evaluated Immortalized Human Hepatocyte (IHH) cell line host response to response to genetically-reconstructed Zaire Ebola virus infection.
