Using the technique known as “Gene Rank”, Dartmouth investigator Eugene Demidenko, PhD, captured and described a new characterization of gene connectivity in “Microarray Enriched Gene Rank,” published in BioData Mining. The effective computer algorithm can be used to compare tissues across or within organisms at great speed with a simple laptop computer.
The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth has announced the addition of two new basic science departments, Biomedical Data Science and Epidemiology.
Dartmouth’s Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (iQBS), a program established to advance and support interdisciplinary education and research at Dartmouth College, has reached a major milestone in infrastructure development.
Lebanon, NH—Dartmouth researchers developed a new biological pathway-based computational model, called the Pathway-based Human Phenotype Network (PHPN), to identify underlying genetic connections between different diseases as reported in BioDataMining; this week. The PHPN mines the data present in large publicly available disease datasets to find shared SNPs, genes, or pathways and […]
Research carried out in two distinct communities in Colombia illustrates how coevolution between humans and bacteria can affect a person’s risk of disease.
