Computational approaches for identification of bacterial resistance pathways in Dictyostelium

Client ID: Agencija za raziskovalno dejavnost RS (BI-US/13-14-016)
Project type: Bilateral Collaboration Project
Project duration: 2013 - 2014

Collaborators on project



The long term goal of the proposed collaboration between Bioinformatics Lab at University of Ljubljana and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston is the discovery of entirely new drugs to treat bacterial infections. In the project we will craft new data fusion techniques that can simultaneously address gene prioritization and inference of gene networks. We will apply them to the problem of bacterial response in Dictyostelium, and package it within a visual programming data analytics toolbox to support its (re)use for the broad community of Dictyostelium researchers and beyond.
