mobilize

The Mobilize Center organized the thematic session on “Data Science in Biomechanics” at the 26th Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) in July. The thematic session generated a lot of interest with over 160 people in attendance. Various data science topics were highlighted including: 1) how large data from wearables, clinics, and research labs are leading to new actionable insights, and 2) how data science tools can help generate new…

Knowledge-Guided Gene Prioritization

knoweng_fullwordmark

Existing methods can rank genes by their predicted role in drug resistance from gene expression of untreated cancer cell lines. But a new computational method “ProGENI” published in Genome Biology pushes this one step further by incorporating prior knowledge on the biochemistry of the relationships between genes, greatly improving the predictions. This gives new insight into the mechanisms of drug resistance and allows researchers to better target genes for new therapies…
