Elan’s TimeTrial Application Published in the Journal of Biological Rhythms

Abstract The circadian rhythm drives the oscillatory expression of thousands of genes across all tissues, coordinating physiological processes. The effect of this rhythm on health has generated increasing interest in discovering genes under circadian control by searching for periodic patterns in transcriptomic time-series experiments. While algorithms for detecting cycling transcripts have advanced, there remains little

Sahil’s GeneSurrounder Method Published in BMC Bioinformatics!

  Abstract Background: A key challenge of identifying disease–associated genes is analyzing transcriptomic data in the context of regulatory networks that control cellular processes in order to capture multi-gene interactions and yield mechanistically interpretable results. One existing category of analysis techniques identifies groups of related genes using interaction networks, but these gene sets often comprise

Rosemary Receives Dean’s Teaching Award

At the sixth annual Driskill Day, students, faculty and alumni gathered to showcase research, celebrate excellence and welcome 30 new doctoral students to The Walter S. and Lucienne Driskill Graduate Program in Life Sciences (DGP). At the event, Rosemary received the Dean’s Teaching Award for the core class Statistics and Data Analysis for Life Sciences.
