Using Graphical Models to Combine Exome and Gene Expression Increases the Power of Disease Mechanism Discovery

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Watson CIT - SWIG Boardroom (CIT241)

Identifying genes associated with complex human diseases is one of the main challenges of human genetics and computational medicine. To answer this question, millions of genetic variants get screened to identify a few of importance. To increase the power of identifying genes associated with diseases and to account for other potential sources of protein function aberrations, we propose a novel factor-graph based model, where much of the biological knowledge is incorporated through factors and priors.

"Infrastructure for the Next Generation of Genomic Analysis"

Massively parallel sequencing technologies now enable the generation of tens of terabytes of raw data per day, with, on average, 3 times that amount of processed data.  Earlier genomics infrastructure projects focused on handling such large volumes of data efficiently, and on performing vast amounts of processing with algorithms that are not embarrassingly parallel, and with combinations of data and genomes that required constant shuffling of data.

"The Genomic Landscape of Endometrial Cancer Progression"

 

Most cancer deaths are due to metastatic disease, but most of our understanding of the cancer genome derives from primary tumors.  We have performed systematic analyses of genomic alterations to characterize patterns of tumor evolution in endometrial cancer from hyperplastic lesions to primary tumors and their paired metastases.  These indicate potential novel driver genes and indicate principles governing the spread of endometrial cancers past their primary site.
