Monday 12 Sep 2022
Time: 15:00 - 16:30


An event series for Turing-Roche partnership updates, knowledge sharing and new perspectives. Find out more about the series.

This event will be on the theme of omics. Omics is a broad field including things like genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics and more, which allows large scale analysis of biological molecules.

About the event

We'll be hearing from Dr Marius Rene Garmhausen, Principal Data Scientist in Personalised Healthcare at Roche and Dr Andrew Holding, Lecturer in Biomedical Science, University of York and former Turing fellow.

Marius will be discussing a recent publication on a large scale computational analysis of over 40,000 cancer patients – identifying 458 mutations that predict survival on targeted therapies. Andrew will be discussing the VULCAN algorithm- which utilises network analysis of genome-wide DNA binding data to predict regulatory interactions of transcription factor and provides new insights into estrogen receptor activation in breast cancer.

The presentations from the speakers and the Q&A session will finish at 16:00 and we will then host an optional networking session 16:00-16:30 for anyone who would like to stay on.

We also hope to have discussions about this area pre and post the event via our Turing-Roche Slack Workspace.
