Perhaps the greatest surprise of human genetic studies is that 90% of disease regions do not affect proteins directly, but instead the circuits that control our genes. This has increased the urgency of mapping the regulatory genome, as a key component for understanding human disease. To address this challenge, we generated maps of genomic control elements across 127 primary human tissues and cell types, and tissue-specific regulatory networks linking these elements to their target genes and their regulators.

Back by Popular Demand!

In 2014 Robert Kabacoff delivered a GBC/ACM seminar on R. That seminar was a great introduction to R, focusing on learning R and applying it to Big Data Analytics. The attendees wanted more - specifically more on using R for data visualization, graphics, and presentations. Based on this demand, Dr. Kabacoff has agreed to deliver a follow-on workshop dedicated to visualization.

Visualization in R

Data visualization has become a central feature of modern data analysis. The R platform provides one of the most flexible and powerful platform for graphing data, understanding and evaluating statistical models, and communicating results to others.

This day-long workshop will provide practical review of R’s major graphing capabilities, including its base functionality and exciting new capabilities provided by add on packages (including ggplot2, ggvis, and rCharts).

GBC/ACM – The Greater Boston Chapter of the ACM

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society. It provides resources that advance computing as a science and a profession. The Greater Boston Chapter of the ACM (GBC/ACM) provides our community of professionals with current and practical information from the innovators themselves. We are a forum for collaborative learning that provides the community with free Evening Seminars and full day Professional Development Seminars that feature distinguished speakers and guests.

GBC/ACM has been one of the most active and successful chapters in the ACM worldwide since its founding in 1962. GBC/ACM is run by volunteers and we encourage your participation in achieving our ongoing mission.
