How methods for data analysis improve the lives of John and Suzy. This animation shows why multiple datasets should be used together to predict outcomes. The MIMOmics consortium develops the necessary methods.
Georgios Bartzis (PhD student, LUMC) won the “Best Student Paper Award” at 9th EMR-IBS and Italian Region conference, Thessaloniki, 8-12 May 2017. The title was: “Estimating metabolite networks subject to dietary preference in the longitudinal setting”. Congratulations!
The topic is statistical and machine learning methods for omics research. The workshop will be under the umbrella of LASR (Leeds Annual Statistical Research) which has been initiated and organized in the past by Prof Kanti Mardia. The workshop will also disseminate methods developed during the 5 years program MIMOmics. Sir David Cox and Prof Ana Conesa (Centro de Investigación Príncipe Felipe, Valencia, Spain and University of Florida, Gainesville, USA) and many others have confirmed to give a lecture at the workshop. For detailed information and registration see workshop website.
On October 3rd and 4th 2016 the “26th annual Workshop on Mathematical and Statistical Aspects of Molecular Biology” will take place at the Computer Science Laboratory in Cambridge, UK. The call for contributions to the Workshop is open. Submission deadline for oral presentations is August 5 2016. See the website for details.
