Accelerate Biomarker Discovery: Learn How to Mine Data for Actionable Insights

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Biomarkers,
  • Monday, July 20, 2020

Identifying biomarkers for diagnostic classification and prognostic assessment is increasingly becoming commonplace. This drive to harness an ever-increasing volume and variety of biomarker data has now become critical to help identify patients that could benefit most from emerging therapies. However, leveraging biomarker-driven insights hinges on mining appropriate datasets both for biomarker hypothesis generation and hypothesis testing. This can be especially cumbersome if the necessary bioinformatics skills to extract the best information out of datasets is missing. Simplifying routine data searching, access and analysis also helps your bioinformaticians to focus on answering more complex data queries and analysis.

In this webinar, the presenters will focus on how scientists with minimal bioinformatics skills are able to easily mine large datasets to not only extract the most relevant biomarker information from published abstracts but also to test that hypothesis on their biomarker datasets to assess the impact of biomarker(s) on patient populations.

Join this webinar and learn how to:

  • Use Causaly’s powerful AI/machine reading-driven technology to extract contextual biomarker information from unstructured sources such as 30million+ PubMed abstracts
  • PerkinElmer Signals™ Translational’s data management and analytics capabilities to search, access and analyze structured datasets totest biomarker hypotheses and identify patient cohorts.
  • This session is ideally suited to scientists, senior stakeholders in translational research, precision medicine, and biomarker discovery.
