Science at the Edge Seminar

Speaker:  Sunduz Keles, Department of Biostatistics & Medical Informatics and Department of Statistics, University of Wisconsin, Madison

Title: Statistical data integration for genomic and epigenomic data

Refreshments at 11:15 am.

Date: Fri, 06 Oct 2017, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Type: Seminar

Location: 1400 BPS Bldg.

My group works on high dimensional statistical genomics and epigenomics with a specific emphasis on data integration problems. In this seminar, I will present our statistical approaches for NGS read-level data integration for studying repetitive regions of the genome and data integration for genomewide-association studies.
