Difference: MultiOmicsWorkshop (r6 vs. r5)

Multi-omics analysis - Workshop


Omics technology has revolutionized molecular approaches towards understanding (human) disease. Unfortunately, data stemming from various omics platforms, such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, tend to be analyzed separately. To fully harness the power of these big data, a simultaneous analysis is required. In this workshop front-line methods for multi-omics data will be explored. This will involve two sessions: Each session will involve lectures and hands-on sessions, during which participants will get a better feel for the methods by practising on their own laptops.

The day will close with a talk by Joaquin Vanschoren (Eindhoven University of Technology) on Open, Reproducible Machine Learning Research. Joaquin's research focusses on the progressive automation of machine learning. He has founded OpenML.org, a platform for networked machine learning research used by researchers all over the world.

The workshop is part of a 2-day event with a symposium on Friday, November 24, 2017.
