Course description

Multiple ‘omics and clinical datatypes as well as other data types such as data from imaging and wearable sensor technologies, will soon be routinely collected in large cohort-based studies of disease. Integration of these data types will impact on disease subtype discovery. This workshop will explain some of the challenges with multi-omics data integration and will introduce some computational approaches.

An overview of integrative clustering methods will be presented, and assessment and interpretation of results will be discussed. Application of an integrative method (Similarity Network Fusion) on a real multi-omics dataset will be explored in R.
