    BISTI February meeting: Seminar
    Feb 2, 2017

    BISTI Investigator Seminar: Heterogeneous ensembles for biomedical problems and DREAM challenges Gaurav Pandey, Ph.D.Assistant ProfessorDepartment of Genetics and Genomic SciencesIcahn Institute of Genomics and Multiscale BiologyIcahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New Yorkhttp://research.mssm.edu/gpandey/ Abstract: In many biomedical prediction scenarios, it is difficult to identify the ideal predictor due to incompleteness of knowledge and/or data quality issues. In such scenarios, a powerful approach is to learn heterogeneous ensemble predictors that are learnt from a large and diverse set of base predictors. This talk will describe the basics of these predictors, as well as our work, supported by a BD2K-supported R01, on novel algorithms for learning such predictors from large biomedical datasets. Preliminary results from an innovative application of these predictors to DREAM Challenges will also be presented.

    Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing (PSB)
    Jan 3, 2018

    The Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing (PSB) 2018 is an international, multidisciplinary conference for the presentation and discussion of current research in the theory and application of computational methods in problems of biological significance. Papers and presentations are rigorously peer reviewed and are published in an archival proceedings volume. 2018 marks the 23rd anniversary of PSB. PSB 2018 will be held January 3-7, 2018 at the Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island of Hawaii. Workshops will be offered prior to the start of the conference. PSB 2018 will bring together top researchers from the US, the Asian Pacific nations, and around the world to exchange research results and address open issues in all aspects of computational biology. PSB is a forum for the presentation of work in databases, algorithms, interfaces, visualization, modeling, and other computational methods, as applied to biological problems, with emphasis on applications in data-rich areas of molecular biology. The PSB has been designed to be responsive to the need for critical mass in sub-disciplines within biocomputing. For that reason, it is the only meeting whose sessions are defined dynamically each year in response to specific proposals. PSB sessions are organized by leaders in the emerging areas and targeted to provide a forum for publication and discussion of research in biocomputing's "hot topics." In this way, PSB provides an early forum for serious examination of emerging methods and approaches in this rapidly changing field.   Online registration - http://psb.stanford.edu/registration/
