Data mining shines a light on the basis of autism

Genome-wide association studies generate vast amounts of data, but a team of researchers led by Rockefeller University in the US have used data mining and data analysis techniques to cut through the data noise and find genetic insights into the causes of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). The prevalence of autism

Data mining Google can give a heads-up to a disease outbreak

Catching infectious disease outbreaks early helps keep them controlled, as resources can be put in place to prevent the disease spreading and treat the affected patients. Researchers at Queensland University of Technology have looked at using data mining to track people’s searches in Google in order to provide an early

Using big data to unpack protein dynamics

Cells are incredibly complex, and interactions between DNA and hundreds of different proteins act as switches turning genes on and off. Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have created a computerised algorithm, allowing them to use machine learning and data analytics to understand the big data behind these

Working with case-control data – GenoKey’s combinatorial data mining platform

Case-control data is important for longitudinal studies, but the huge sets of complex data can make analysis difficult. GenoKey’s combinatorial data mining algorithms, run on standard computer hardware, can cut through the complexity in minutes, finding correlations with a speed and accuracy unmatched by other tools currently available. Case-control studies
