Description:

With each successive discovery in genetics the dynamic complexity of the gene structure and gene regulation have become increasingly apparent. It’s now understood that the majo¬rity of human genes produce multiple functional products, or isoforms, primarily through alternative transcription and splicing. Different isoforms within the same gene have been shown to participate in different functional pathways, and the altered expression of specific isoforms have been associated with numerous diseases. Consequently, transcriptome analyses based on gene-centric informatics methods; (a) may result in wasted resources in following up “leads” that cannot be replicated because they are false, (b) may result in missing important findings that should have been discovered, and most importantly (c) misinterpretation of the underlying biology. In this talk I will describe some of our recent data science methodologies, which are based on some “old ideas” that account for the underlying splice- and transcript-variants. These informatics methods are illustrated using our recent published studies on platform-independent Informatics pipeline for molecular sub-typing of cancers. I will also discuss our ongoing work on discovery of drug-target genes at isoform/splice-variant level.

Description:

Abstract: Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety has become a distinct field of Health Services and Outcomes Research. A main focus of the field is how to do quality improvement. Many approaches to improvement have been applied to healthcare such as PDSA, DMAIC, and 8D. All of these approaches are aligned with the scientific method and emphasize the importance of defining the problem and measurement. Since measurement is key to the process, the use of innovative informatics methods is essential to advancing healthcare quality improvement. I have started to work on Dr. Nicholas Soulakis’ project of defining a teamwork measure. Teamwork is an essential part of healthcare and has been recognized as a crucial quality improvement area. In order to improve teamwork, measurement is key.
