Although it is still challenging to prevent the transmission of COVID-19, researchers at the University of Miami are using all the strategies they can to fend off the spread. That includes using cutting-edge research to detect SARS-CoV-2—the virus that causes COVID-19—in wastewater*. Read more “Researchers Broaden Tracking of COVID-19 Through Wastewater”

Network science is a mature discipline, and in both systems biology and systems medicine applications, offers a variety of methodological tools useful for integrative inference purposes, elucidating in particular molecular interactions of various type and complexity. An advantage that networks offer refers to representation, interpretation, and visualization properties in systems’ embedded modular configurations. The clusters of genes or proteins that one observes grouped into communities, are reducing de facto the degrees of freedom and reorganizing cellular networks according to a mix of localized characteristics reflecting gene—gene and protein—protein spatio-temporal associative dynamics.

CCS invites you to participate in a Bioinformatics Seminar on Tuesday, June 14th, at 12:00 PM, in the Clinical Research Building, Room 692. Dr. Biju Issac presents, “Microarray Experiment Design: Sample Size Calculations.” Dr. Issac is an Associate Scientist with the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core in the Bioinformatics Division at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Bioinformatics Seminars and Journal Club are run by the Center for Computational Science, and address aspects of Bioinformatics relevant to medical research. Anyone with an interest in the topic can attend; anyone interested in being added to (or indeed taken off) the mailing list should please contact the Bioinformatics Group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
