Abstract: Clinical datasets present unique opportunities for existing and emerging descriptive and predictive analytics methods and models. In this talk, I will first describe a novel data integration methodology to identify subtypes of cancer using multiple data types (mRNA, methylation, microRNA, copy number variation, somatic variants) that come from different platforms (microarray, sequencing, etc.). Next, I will focus on a machine learning methodology to better understand the human skeletal muscle cell atlas. In particular, developing long short-term memory (LSTM) units of a recurrent neural network (RNN) to be able to predict the time-dependent changes in the morphology of the skeletal muscle cells using Differential Expansion Microscopy (DiExM) and Expansion Microscopy (EM) images. Next, I will discuss motivations for the ongoing work in discovering resting state EEG networks in neonates.
