Free Webinar – Machine Learning and Systems Biology Unite to Decode Drug Resistance

viSNEJanWebinar-576pxDon’t miss our free Webinar Thursday, January 25th at 9:00 AM PDT.

Learn how a systems biology approach that utilizes machine learning tools facilitates drug resistance discovery. Special guest, Cancer Biology PhD candidate Reema Baskar, co-mentored by Drs. Sean Bendall and Sylvia Plevritis of Stanford University, will show you how they leveraged Cytobank along with other computational tools to identify mechanisms of drug resistance in cancer cells.




Go in-depth to see how data management, quality control, and machine learning algorithms in the Cytobank cloud can lead to quality results, faster.

The session will be led by Hannah Polikowsky, Program Manager for Cytobank Scientific Services, and will end with a live Q&A with Hannah and Reema.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand how viSNE (tSNE) in Cytobank helped investigators rapidly identify cancer cells resistant to apoptosis following drug treatment
  • See how a systematic systems biology approach leverages computational tools to reveal a possible mechanism of drug resistance
