    Neville Sanjana, Ph.D.

    CBB SeminarLocation: French Family Science Center (Room 4233)My lab develops genome engineering tools to understand how genetic variants affect human health and disease. Using unbiased, genome-wide loss-of-function screens, we have identified genes responsible for therapeutic resistance in melanoma, for metastasis, and for cell survival in human stem cells and cancer cells.

    RNA-Seq Analysis

    **WAITLIST ONLY**Date: March 29, 2018; 9 am – 1:00 pm (Limited to 12 participants)Registration Deadline: March 19, 2018Location: Old Chem 101Cost: $50 for faculty, postdocs and staff; Free for grad studentsThis 4-hour tutorial will provide you with a better understanding of the data processing and analysis methods that are used in RNA-seq analysis. We will cover topics such as data quality control, normalization, and calling differentially expressed genes. We will provide hands-on experience that will allow you to go back to your lab and work with your own data.Pre-requisites: "Introduction to Unix" and "Introduction to Scientific Computing for Genomics" (or equivalent experience).Register here: https://duke.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_a2BEvQv3PDlYRJr

    An Overview of Risk Prediction and Classification in Omics Settings

    Registration Deadline: March 20, 2018Location: 2240 CIEMASCost: FreeThis course has two objectives. First, it seeks to develop an understanding of risk prediction and classification in the Omics setting. Second, for researchers who plan to develop risk models, this course seeks to provide concrete steps for study design, analysis, and interpretation.To accomplish these goals, we will discuss how different aspects of a statistical model can provide measures of association or measures of predictive accuracy. This distinction is important in understanding how developing a model for association/etiology/causal inference is conceptually different from using the model to predict.We will then discuss risk models in the conventional setting: larger sample sizes with a smaller number of predictors. We will cover study design, statistical models, and performance metrics. The course seeks to develop an appreciation of challenging considerations in the field, but also seeks to provide clear steps on how to proceed. Finally, we will review areas of active research and in what direction the field is moving.After establishing foundations, we will move into the Omics realm, which is characterized by smaller samples sizes and thousands of predictors.  Prediction models in Omics often use machine-learning techniques, so we will cover some common machine-learning techniques and what makes them different from more conventional models. We will review current best practices with an emphasis on estimating performance.We will conclude with a mix of topics including: the time-to-event setting, the competing -risk setting, the challenges of replication in biomarker research, and a summary of steps to develop a risk-prediction model.Register here: https://duke.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_a2BEvQv3PDlYRJr
