We will be running a classic 2-day mixOmics workshop in November, taught by Dr Kim-Anh Lê Cao and Sébastien Déjean and other mixOmics team contributors. The event and Dr Kim-Anh Lê Cao’s visit is sponsored by the visiting scientist program INP Toulouse.
The objective of the workshop is to introduce the fundamental concepts of multivariate dimension reduction methodologies. Those methods are particularly useful for data exploration and integration of large data sets, and especially in the context of systems biology, or in research areas where statistical data integration is required. Each methodology (one ‘omics, 2 and multiple ‘omics integration) that will be presented during the course will be applied on biological “omics” studies including transcriptomics, metabolomic, proteomics and microbiome data sets using the R package mixOmics
