Wanted: More Data, the Dirtier the Better
The computational immunologist Purvesh Khatri embraces messy data as a way to capture the messiness of disease. As a result, he’s making elusive genomic discoveries
To distill a clear message from growing piles of unruly genomics data, researchers often turn to meta analysis a tried and true statistical procedure for combining data from multiple studies.
Stem Cell Discoveries
The Gevaert lab discovered two types of intestinal stem cells using bioinformatics analysis of transcriptome data of several populations of intestinal stem cells. This work was a highly collaborative effort in the context of a national network of intestinal stem cell researchers.
Four image feature model predicts the presence of EGFR mutations in non small cell lung cancer
The Gevaert lab together with the department of radiology developed a model based on only four image features that predicts the presence of EGFR mutations in non small cell lung cancer. This work shows that macroscopic phenotypes such as tumor shapes, textures and tumor environment reflect their molecular properties.
