Mutex Miner

Most humans have similar genomes, except in certain locations (mutations). Generally, mutations are harmless, but these locations may sometimes overlap with some important regions of the genome and can have an adverse effect. In this hackathon, you are asked to predict the label of mutation, signifying whether it is Benign, Likely Pathogenic, Pathogenic or something else. Note that this is multi-class classification problem with 9 class labels.
