Variable Selection and Prioritization in Bayesian Machine Learning Methods Where: Beaupre 105 When: Friday, October 21st, 4PM Abstract: A consistent theme of the work done in my lab group is to take modern computational approaches and develop theory that enable their interpretations to be related back to classical genomic principles. The central aim of this […]Continue reading "Dr. Lorin Crawford, Microsoft Research New England and Brown University"
Multi-Study Approaches: adventures from nutrition to genomics Date: September 30th, 2022 @ 4pm-5pm Location: Beaupre 105 Host: Gavino Puggione Biostatistics and computational biology are increasingly facing the urgent challenge of efficiently dealing with a large amount of experimental data.
