PROOF Centre’s Chief Informatics Officer, Dr. Raymond Ng, will be at the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery in Databases in Nancy, France from September 15th to 19th, 2014.

Dr. Ng will be speaking about Big Data for Personalized Medicine: a case study of Biomarker Discovery.

Personalized medicine has been hailed as one of the main frontiers for medical research in this century. In the first half of the talk, he will give an overview on our projects that use gene expression, proteomics, DNA and clinical features for biomarker discovery. In the second half of the talk, he will describe some of the challenges involved in biomarker discovery. One of the challenges is the lack of quality assessment tools for data generated by ever-evolving genomics platforms. He will conclude the talk by giving an overview of some of the techniques we have developed on data cleansing and pre-processing.
