@Imperial College London, Department of Computing (Part I)

I have just arrived to London, United Kingdom, where I will stay until the end of November this year. I will be working at Imperial College London, Department of Computing, Computational Network Biology Research Group led by Prof. Dr. Natasa Przulj. For this great opportunity I need to thank to my supervisor Prof. Dr. Blaz Zupan, Head of Bioinformatics Laboratory at UofLj.

My work here will be about network integration for disease classification, specifically inferring prediction models from heterogenous data sources through matrix factorization. More about it in the next days. For now you can check the Interactive map of the Diseasome (Below is an image showing a part of diseasome. Interested reader is referred to Barabasi's paper The Human Disease Network.) linked from the NYTimes article Redefining Disease, Genes and All.

I am very much looking forward to it :)
