Integrative Data Analytics Core
The Integrative Data Analytics Core will provide Center investigators access to the instruments and expertise to standardize, quantify, and integrate omics, imaging and clinical traits. The Core will provide guidance and expertise on data management (e.g. data collection protocol, data storage tool usage), image processing (e.g. image enhancement, image denoising, image segmentation, imaging feature extraction, image texture analysis), omics data analysis (e.g. genome, epigenome, and transcriptome study design, quality control, and normalization), and integrating omics across modalities and species (human compared to model organism). Finally, this Core will assist Center investigators with analyzing all imaging, omics, and preclinical phenotype data or clinical data using integrative approaches, machine learning model training, validation, and interpreting the results.
Contact: Contact Stephen Parker, PhD when beginning a project and for general assistance with core access. He will provide guidance on experimental design and the appropriate Faculty and Core expert to contact next. Each investigator will also meet with a Faculty Core Expert (Dr. Parker: omics analyses and integration; Dr. Soroushmehr: image analyses; Dr. Najarian: machine learning) to establish a plan that best supports their research project, and to obtain advice on experimental design, sample size estimates and projected integrative analyses.
