CBRI Seminar – Christine Wells – 22nd April 2016
A seminar by Professor Christine Wells (Dept Anatomy & Neuroscience, University of Melbourne)
The Stemformatics stem cell atlas and multi-omic collaboration resource
Stemformatics is a web resource designed to facilitate collaborations between the stem cell and bioinformatics/biostatistics communities. It consists of a curated stem cell atlas of more than 800 stem cell datasets, compiling transcriptome, proteome and epigenome data from thousands of stem cell samples. The atlas provides stem cell researchers with fast and intuitive views of individual genes, pathways or exemplar public projects. The atlas also provides a library of high quality, highly curated datasets for the computational biology community interested in method development or integrative ‘omic analyses. I will describe our own research program in cross-platform transcriptome modelling of stem cell ‘signatures’, using sparse variable selection methods for stem cell classification.
When: 11am, Friday 22 April
Where: ESJ King Theatre
