Bio- and Medical- Informatics Presenter: Russell Greiner
Vision Statement 2 Helping the world understand … and make informed decisions. * Potential beneficiaries: biological and medical researchers, practicing clinicians, and the people they serve. bio- and medical- informatics * data
3 Motivation High impact on bio-science and society Local bioinformatics expertise ML has a key role: actual patterns (predictors, … ) not known lots of data Challenging ML problems data is high dimensional, noisy, … often structured data need to obtain training data, labels, … …

11 How to Treat Brain Tumours? Irradiate ONLY visible tumor No! Must also kill “ (radiographically) occult ” cancer cells surrounding tumour ! Irradiate everything within 2 cm margin around tumor But that … also includes normal cells still misses other occult cells Standard Practice!
12 How to Treat Brain Tumours? BETTER: Predict (from earlier data) location of occult cells Just irradiate that region! Minimize number of normal cells zapped to minimize loss of brain function Meaningful, as conformal radiotherapy can zap arbitrary shapes!
13 How to Predict? Occult cells region where tumour cell will grow next (Assumption) use prior data (260 patients) Observe each patient over time – how tumours have grown Predict patterns, based on properties of tumour, patient, region, …
Technology … Using Discriminative Random Field Segmentation Growth Prediction Extensions: Increase Accuracy: Support Vector Random Field Increase Computational Efficiency: Decoupled SVRF Exploit Unlabeled Region: Semi-Supervised (D)SVRF
15 Brain Tumour: Future Work Incorporate other modalities Diffusion Tensor Imaging PET … Compute other features: Textures (BGLAM) Using alignment Improve learning algorithms Use Active Learning techniques to determine which regions/slices/studies/patients to label using which human labeler
19 HMP Overview Goal: identity & quantify the entire human “ metabolome ” all small endogamous and exogenous chemicals that appear in a non-trivial quantity in people … 30,000 Genes 3200 Enzymes 2300 Chemicals Metabolomics Proteomics Genomics ``HMDB: The Human Metabolome Database'‘, Nucleic Acids Research, January 2007.
20 HMP #1: Fast Profiling Given an NMR spectrum (blood, urine, CSF), autonomously find & quantify >100 compounds, in < 2 minutes If know “ NMR signature ” of each metabolite … then linear least squares Except … “ signature ” not stable – shifts with unobservable ions Think EM … ML challenge Acquire “ conditional NMR signature ” Active Learning
21 Cachexia? Classifier Cachexia = Yes! Collect patient urine Obtain NMR spectrum Classify Profile Compute Metabolic Profile Gluco mse Hippur ate Histidi ne Isoleuc ine Isopro panol LactateLactose … Leucine … 5.6 HMP #2: Classify Patients Given: Metabolic profile of patient NMR/Mass spec of patient ’ s urine, blood, CSF Predict: Patient ’ s disease state Reaction to Rx; Cachexia; Cancer The role of ML … Learn Profile Dx classifier
22 HMP #3: Chemical Property Given: Specific metabolite (chemical) Predict: Chemical properties of metabolite Solubility, Melting point, … Biological properties of metabolite which reactions consume it, … The role of ML … Learn Metabolite Property classifier
