Department of Statistics Spring 2019 Seminar Series

Talk Title: Dissecting transcriptional and translational regulatory circuits in human cancers

Speaker: Zhe Ji, Assistant Professor, Pharmacology, Feinberg School of Medicine; Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering, McCormick School of Engineering; Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center, Northwestern University

Time: 11:00am

Abstract: With the advances of genomics technologies, we now can study the steps of gene expression regulation in a systematic and cost-effective manner. I will present our work developing novel computational tools using machine learning for integrative analyses of multi-omics data, and revealing novel molecular mechanisms controlling gene transcription and RNA translation. And we applied the experimental and computational genomics technologies to decode the key regulatory circuits mediating cancer progression and tumor microenvironment.

Location: Department of Statistics, Room B02, 2006 Sheridan Rd, Evanston 60208
