This document provides a general summary of the 2 virtual workshops held in Fall of 2015 to explore the suitability of epigenetic engineering tools to specifically modify epigenetic loci to study and/or treat cancer.
Community Health Worker Genetics Education Needs Assessment
23 Nov 2015 | Downloads | Contributor(s): Andria Reyes, Manuela Orjuela, Karen Schmitt, Andria Reyes, Grace Hillyer, Stephen Emerson
Our overarching goal is to develop and establish a cancer genetics curriculum that is pertinent, culturally sensitive and understandable by a community population who is not English dominant and of a lower literacy level than that of the general New York City population. The curriculum will teach...
Pathology Image Informatics Platform for visualization, analysis and management
07 Oct 2015 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Metin Gurcan, Anant Madabhushi, Anne Martel
This multi-institutional proposal seeks to expand on an existing, freely available pathology image viewer (Sedeen Image Viewer) to create a pathology informatics platform (PIIP) for managing, annotating, sharing, and quantitatively analyzing digital Pathology Imaging (DPI) data. Sedeen has become...
Next-Generation Clustered Heat Maps (NG-CHM)
07 Oct 2015 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Weinstein John, Bradley Broom
Clustered Heat Maps (CHMs) have been referred to as the ubiquitous visual icons of post-genomic biology -- the most frequent type of visualization for large molecular profiling databases. However, “traditional” CHMs are static images -- a serious limitation. Accordingly, we have now...
Open source diffusion MRI technology for brain cancer research
07 Oct 2015 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Lauren O\'Donnell
Using measurements of water diffusion, dMRI can give unique insights into the microstructure and cellular orientation of tissues. There is a growing awareness in the neurosurgery community that diffusion models must move beyond the current clinical standard of the diffusion tensor for better...

Brain Cancer Imaging Analytics
02 Oct 2015 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Christos Davatzikos
The transition of oncologic imaging from its “industrial era” to it is “information era” demands analytical methods that 1) extract information from this data that is clinically and biologically relevant; 2) integrate imaging, clinical, and genomic data via rigorous...
"Show me the data!" Practical solutions to interactive visual analysis for big data.
18 Sep 2015 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Samuel Payne
Nano WG September 10, 2015.Intuitive data visualization is critical for biomedical data analysis; especially essential is the ability for non-computational scientists to productively browse the data and apply their domain knowledge. We present Active Data Biology, a web-based visual...
