Group and sparse group partial least squares approaches applied in a genomics context

Group and sparse group partial least squares approaches applied in a genomics context

In this talk, I will concentrate on a class of multivariate statistical methods called Partial Least Squares (PLS). They are used for analysing the association between two blocks of ‘omics’ data, which bring challenging issues in computational biology due to their size and complexity. In this framework, we will exploit the knowledge on the grouping […]

Wrapping Your R tools to Analyze National-Scale Cancer Genomics in the Cloud

The Cancer Genomics Cloud (CGC), built by Seven Bridges and funded by the National Cancer Institute hosts The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), that is one of the world’s largest cancer genomics data collections. Computational resources and optimized, portable bioinformatics tools are provided to analyze the cancer data at any scale immediately, collaboratively, and reproducibly. Seven […]
