Applying Genomic Analytics to Develop Tailored Therapeutics, Upcoming Webinar Presented by Precision for Medicine, Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 20, 2015) - In an upcoming webinar on September 14, 2015, Precision for Medicine will demonstrate how smart machine learning algorithms designed to incorporate information about molecular and cellular systems can revolutionize the ability to discover complex hierarchical genomic effects driving disease pathogenesis or severity and treatment response patterns.

Precision for Medicine will present a case study using PATH™, a new cloud-based predictive genomic analytics platform, on patients with lung squamous cell carcinoma and RNA-seq gene expression. You will learn how the the power of using a novel combination of machine learning algorithms with a systems biology based approach for identifying genes and the subsequent exonic regions driving prognosis for patients with lung squamous cell carcinoma (SQCC). PATH™ will be applied on 553 lung SQCC patients with survival outcomes and RNA-Seq exon-level mRNA expression data obtained from The Cancer Genome Atlas.

The live broadcast takes place on Monday, September 14, 2015 at 11am EDT / 4pm BST (UK/GMT+1).

The future of healthcare will be transformed by these flexible frameworks designed to discover complex signals in rich datasets through the merger of predictive genomic analytics and systems biology. Navigating the process from biomarker discovery to a companion or complementary diagnostic requires that researchers get the support necessary to make sense of big data being generated in NGS pipelines.

To meet modern research demands Precision for Medicine has engineered PATH™ to provide a secure, scalable, cloud-based solution for predictive genomic analytics and an intuitive graphical user interface for interactive data visualization and exploration. This presentation will also highlight how the concepts presented in this case study readily translate into unleashing the potential of big data to enable a precision medicine focused drug development process, resulting in increased benefit-risk profiles for patients with a particular biomarker profile and smaller, shorter clinical trials.
