May Data Sharing and Reuse Seminar
Dr. Avi Ma’ayan will present "The Diabetes Data and Hypothesis Hub (D2H2) and the Playbook Partnership Workflow Builder (PPWB): Bioinformatics Tools for Hypothesis Generation via Data Integration” at the monthly Data Sharing and Reuse Seminar on May 12, 2023, at 12 p.m. EDT.
About the Seminar
This seminar will discuss two new interactive bioinformatics software tools that integrate knowledge from many NIH funded and other key resources for hypothesis generation. The Diabetes Data and Hypothesis Hub (D2H2) is a platform that integrates tools and datasets related to diabetes research into one integrative platform. The Playbook Partnership Workflow Builder (PPWB) is a system that enables novice users to created bioinformatics workflows by exploring a network of distributed but connect microservices. These two new tools will be demonstrated through a variety of use cases with applications that prioritize personalized drugs and targets for kidney disease, diabetes, and pan-cancer.
About the Speaker
Dr. Ma’ayan is a Mount Sinai Endowed Professor in Bioinformatics, Professor in the Department of Pharmacological Sciences, Director of the Mount Sinai Center for Bioinformatics, and a faculty member of the Department of Artificial Intelligence and Human Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. The Ma'ayan Laboratory applies computational methods to study the complexity of regulatory networks in mammalian cells. His research team develops software systems to help experimental biologists form novel hypotheses from high-throughput data with a focus on drug and target discovery through machine learning and other statistical methods.
About the Seminar Series
The seminar is open to the public and registration is required each month. Individuals who need interpreting services and/or other reasonable accommodations to participate in this event should contact Danielle Johnikin at 301-670-4990. Requests should be made at least five days in advance of the event.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Data Science Strategy hosts this seminar series to highlight exemplars of data sharing and reuse on the second Friday of each month at noon ET. The monthly series highlights researchers who have taken existing data and found clever ways to reuse the data or generate new findings. A different NIH institute or center will also share its data science activities each month.
