In January, 2021, an online X-omics workshop series will start. Different aspects of challenges and solutions related to multi-omics data integration are being addressed in four workshops.
We will have a look at the different tools and platforms mixOmics, cBioPortal and R2.
The third workshop will highlight –omics clocks and –omics risk scores.
Finally, we invite you to pitch your own project and get advice from panelists and participants on experimental design and data integration strategies for a multi-omics approach.
Dr.Ir. Daniella Kasteel is the project manager of X-omics. She is an experienced project/research manager with a scientific background.
