Creating and Analyzing Integrated Probabilistic Functional Networks of Omics Data

Abstract:

The last decade has seen the amount of high-throughput, genome-wide biological data (omics data) increase dramatically. While the analysis of networks constructed from individual data types, such as protein-protein interaction networks, has provided valuable insights into biological processes, this approach does not make best use of all the data available. In this talk I describe work underway at Newcastle University and elsewhere to integrate data from diverse sources into a single  network,  with probabilistic edge weightings. I also discuss the types of analysis to which these networks are amenable, and the biological insights which they can provide.
