Upcoming Biostats Seminars

Biostatistics Seminar Series

Biostatistics Seminar: Shuangge Steven Ma, PhD, Yale School of Public Health

Thursday 9/14 3:30PM - 5:00PM
Public Health Auditorium (G23)

Biostatistics Seminar guest speaker, Shuangge Steven Ma, PhD, Yale School of Public Health, will present, "Integrating multidimensional omics data for cancer prognosis."

Prognosis is of essential interest in cancer research. Multiple types of omics measurements – including mRNA gene expression, methylation, copy number variation, SNP, and others – have been implicated in cancer prognosis. The analysis of multidimensional omics data is challenging because of the high data dimensionality and, more importantly, because of the interconnections between different units of the same type of measurement and between different types of omics measurements. In our study, we have developed novel regularization based methods, effectively integrated multidimensional data, and constructed prognosis models. It is shown that integrating multidimensional data can lead to biological discoveries missed by the analysis of one dimensional data and superior prognosis models.
