石瑜教授前来学会提供生物信息学咨询服务

2009年10月21日下午14:00,在中心1号楼12楼大会议室,上海市生物信息学会邀请石瑜教授前来为学会会员及其他生物学研究人员提供生物信息学方面的咨询服务。



石瑜,是美国范德堡大学肿瘤中心副主任,肿瘤中心统计主任,也是上海生物信息技术研究中心的特聘教授,研究方向为:建立集硬件、软件和专业统计人员为一体的强大的生物统计学共享和研发平台,为肿瘤研究实验室和大规模临床实验提供从实验设计、课题申请,到数据分析、文章写作中全方位的生物统计学支撑。

石瑜教授先为大家带来了以“Omics Era and its Impact on Biomedical Research,Are we ready to be the new sheriffs in town?”为主题的学术报告,精彩的学术报告结束后,大家又就工作上遇到的一些专业问题展开了咨询提问,最后此次活动在一片热烈和谐的气氛中结束。



Abstract
Omics Era and its Impact on Biomedical Research
Are we ready to be the new sheriffs in town?

Yu Shyr, Ph.D.
Cancer Biostatistics Center and Department of Biostatistics
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine

The last decade has seen a veritable explosion in the amount of raw information generated by molecular biologists worldwide. Modern technology today allows the collection of biological information at an unprecedented level of detail and in increasingly vast quantities. To reap real knowledge from the mountains of data produced, however, requires interdisciplinary skills-a background not only in biology but also in biostatistics and the bioinformatics tools and techniques of data analysis. The motivation of this talk is to help the audience meet the challenges of genomic, e.g., microarray experiment, and proteomic, e.g., M(S)ALDI-TOF experiments, research. The statistical challenges and opportunities of these researches include the experiment design, data pre-processing, quality control, data mining, pattern recognition, class comparison, model prediction, visualization, and interpretation. The talk builds the foundation in the biostatistics, bioinformatics, and data analysis tools needed by biologists and provides the overview of high throughput assays needed by statisticians, mathematicians, and bioinformaticians.
