NIH Neuroscience Challenges

NIH Data Science Distinguished Seminar Series
Towards Solutions to Experimental and Computational Challenges in Neuroscience
Air date: Friday, August 14, 2015, 11:00 AM videocast

Drs. Christof Koch and Emery Brown will describe the computational or experimental challenges associated with Big Data in their respective domains of neuroscience. From the basic to applied realms, science is being transformed by the collection of data on increasingly finer resolutions, both spatially and temporally. Storing, accessing, and analyzing these data create numerous challenges and opportunities.

Related Research

Dr. Roach’s research interests include analysis of MHC haplotypes and their relationship to risk and etiology of type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases. Dr. Roach is pioneering approaches for the analysis of whole genome sequencing data in the context of family pedigrees. His past studies have included (1) the systems biology of the macrophage, particularly in its role as an information processing device, at the levels of cell surface receptors, signal transduction, and nuclear regulation, (2) the molecular phylogenetics of vertebrate gene families, particularly those genes relevant to macrophage information processing, and (3) analysis and interpretation of transcript enumeration data, ...
