Integrating Diverse Datasets – Webinar Series

When: November 3, 2021 Time: 3:00 pm

We are now firmly in the era of big data and researchers have an increasing amount of data at their fingertips. However, one of the biggest challenges still faced is the integration and interpretation of the diverse large-scale omics datasets in a way that provides biological insights and derives causative relationships to disease. This requires the development of tools and experimental methods to follow up on hypotheses generated by our data. Together, this will allow us to answer novel questions and identify causative relationships to disease. But, where do we start?

Join us for ‘Integrating Diverse Datasets‘, a three-part webinar series where leading researchers dive into methods of collection of multi-omics data, address the challenges of data integration and analysis, and share success stories of how their data analysis is fuelling research and the development of new therapeutics.

Webinar 1: From data into biological mechanisms through integration

Wednesday 3rd November 2021, 3pm GMT/ 4pm CET/ 11am EDT

The coupling of diverse datasets has enabled rapid advances in the understanding of complex networks. This webinar will focus on case studies of combining diverse datasets for the understanding of mechanisms in human diseases.

Function of chromatin regulators linked to neurodevelopmental disorders – Kyung-Min Noh, Group Leader, EMBL Heidelberg Germany

Integrating epigenetics to construct gene regulatory networks – Abhijeet Sonawane, Instructor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School

Webinar 2: Methods of data integration, visualisation, and interpretation

Wednesday 10th November 2021, 3pm GMT/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST

Significant bioinformatic challenges remain with data integration, visualisation, and interpretation. This webinar will focus on case studies showcasing the methods of data integration and address the challenges of this type of analysis.
