主讲内容:

Technological advances in high-throughput molecular measurements in genetics and genomics are revolutionizing biological and medical research. The data explosion means that statistics and statisticians have an important role to play because of our expertise in modelling and inference. This talk will be split into three parts: (i) A selection operator for summary association statistics reveals allelic heterogeneity of complex traits, (ii) Pleiotropic insights of 22 novel loci for human anthropometry: discovery, replication, and in silico functional investigation, and (iii) Integration of omics data to discover driver genes in cancer.  In part (i), we describe a novel variable-selection procedure to complement the genome-wide association studies (GWAS) in order to estimate the allelic heterogeneity within the significant loci. Part (ii) describes a joint analysis of multiple phenotypes in GWAS. We implement a fast and powerful multi-trait meta-analysis for genetic studies, which is able to combine any set of phenotypes, with any combination of outcome distributions and any level of sample overlap. In part (iii) we show an algorithm to integrate multiple omics data at DNA and RNA levels, together with functional information such as gene-protein networks. A successful integration can reveal potential cancer drivers, which are biologically meaningful biomarkers (i) for better understanding of cancer progression and (i) for clinical translation in terms of therapeutic targets in personalized medicine.
