Welcome to the Integrative Data Science Research (IDSR) group founded by Dr. Yasser El-Manzalawy. The primary goal of IDSR is to develop innovative algorithms and tools for enabling and promoting data-intensive, collaborative, and translational research in precision medicine, microbiome research, and health/clinical informatics.
Our vision is to advance our understanding and make sense of big data in life and health sciences through developing and applying integrative informatics tools and methodologies to enable and accelerate translational science.
In realizing our vision, we will form data science teams and participate in several interdisciplinary research projects. Our methodology employs machine learning and system biology approaches to address emerging data integration challenges (e.g., heterogeneity, scalability,...
