Improving genomic data analysis – from soybeans to humans

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher

Article by Colette Gallagher and Amy Clay-Moore When Daniel Wickland, Ph.D., was a predoctoral student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he first worked to improve genomic data analysis for soybeans. But soon he shifted his focus, bringing his computer programming and informatics skills to work with Mayo Clinic and Illinois researchers to better […]

Tool of the trade: researcher applies artificial intelligence to uncover causes, risks for disease

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen

Some diseases, such as certain breast and colon cancers, are linked to genetic mutations passed down in families. But for many other diseases there are no direct genetic links that explain why the disease develops. That’s why Manolis Kellis, Ph.D. and his team are using artificial intelligence to uncover the hidden cause of disease. Dr. […]

Harnessing the power of big data to uncover genetic risk for disease

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen

There is no single gene that causes diabetes, bipolar disorder or Alzheimer’s disease, but there are genes linked to conditions that may occur before a patient eventually develops these disorders. What if researchers could identify individuals whose genetic makeup puts them at risk for developing disease so that physicians could intervene sooner and provide more […]

Center for Individualized Medicine Announces 2015 Gerstner Family Career Development Awards

By Jeff Briggs Jeff Briggs

Early in their careers, many young biomedical investigators find it difficult to secure the funds necessary to continue their research. Groundbreaking research into possible new treatments for patients and potential breakthroughs to finding cures for some of our deadliest diseases can fall by the wayside without timely support of young investigators with vigorous new ideas.
