Grant Submitted to NSF-ABI

In collaboration with Olga Vitek, David Salt and Mourad Ouzzani at Purdue University, we just submitted a grant to the NSF Advances in Bioinformatics Infrastructure program. The title of the grant was "Connecting ionome and deletome: a computational and statistical approach".

In this grant, we propose to use the Yeast ionomics datasets as a model to:

1. Develop statistical methods to deal with large screens of high-dimensional phenotyping data.

2. Develop workflows to integrate multiple data types to generate knowledge using these datasets and other publicly available datasets.

3. Incorporate tools into Piims to facilitate these types of projects.
