Integrating Diverse Datasets - Webinar 1: From data into biological mechanisms through integration

About this event

We are now firmly in the era of big data and researchers have an increasing amount of data at their fingertips. However, one of the biggest challenges still faced is the integration and interpretation of the diverse large-scale omics datasets in a way that provides biological insights and derives causative relationships to disease. This requires the development of tools and experimental methods to follow up on hypotheses generated by our data. Together, this will allow us to answer novel questions and identify causative relationships to disease. But, where do we start?

Join us for this three-part series as leading researchers dive into methods of collection of multi-omics data, address the challenges of data integration and analysis, and share success stories of how this type of analysis is fuelling research and the development of new therapeutics.

Webinar 1: From data into biological mechanisms through integration

Wednesday 3rd November 2021, 3pm GMT/ 4pm CET/ 11am EDT

The coupling of diverse datasets has enabled rapid advances in the understanding of complex networks. This webinar will focus on case studies of combining diverse datasets for the understanding of mechanisms in human diseases.

Function of chromatin regulators linked to neurodevelopmental disorders – Kyung-Min Noh, Group Leader, EMBL Heidelberg Germany
