Poster Award at the Basel Computational Biology Conference

Our poster onĀ Gene prioritization by compressive data fusion and chaining got best poster award at the Basel Computational Biology Conference ([BC]^2).

The poster highlights our recent computational method that prioritizes genes by fusing heterogeneous data. An appealing property of our approach is its ability to consider data that might be provided in totally different input spaces, which is achieved through chaining of the latent data representation. We report on a very successful application in hunting genes responsible for bacterial resistance in Dictyostelium, where our predictions were validated in the wet lab.
