Join us this August for a course that focuses on the use of computational biology tools for advanced, discovery-oriented data science in biomedical research. This CQS Summer Institute will have a biological applications emphasis. The central goal of this course is to teach students how to choose and apply tools with contrasting strengths to identify unexpected patterns and to test hypotheses in complex datasets. Drs. Irish and Lau will introduce the theme of data science and provide a conceptual background. Dr. Lau will lead two practical days focused on single cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq), feature selection, and identifying developmental progressions in single cell data. Dr. Irish will lead two practical days focused on implementing machine learning tools, longitudinal analysis, and cross-platform comparisons with an emphasis on single cell protein and phospho-protein data. Students will learn to apply concepts from machine learning and data science in basic and clinical research studies.
