Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Seminar

March 4, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Mark Segal

Professor, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics

University of California San Francisco



It can arise that underused data analytic methodology may enjoy wide-ranging applicability.

I showcase use of the Patient Rule Induction Method (PRIM) at two radically different scales:

(1) identifying genomic ‘3D hotspots’ — localized regions wherein an attribute superposed on a 3D genome reconstruction is extreme; and (2) identifying stellar kinematic groups and open clusters in the Milky Way.  In the first example a novel principal curve based reconstruction technique is introduced while, in both instances, nuances surrounding coordinate systems and inference are addressed.
