HIRN now has a YouTube Channel. All of the publicly recorded videos from our Webinar & Tutorials will be posted on this channel to share with the research community. We encourage you to subscribe and to share an informational video you may have that you would like us to share profiling your HIRN research.

HIRN’s progress in machine learning (ML) can be highlighted through two excellent open-source software tools, immuneML and PennAI. The recent product of a large collaboration that includes the Brusko lab, immuneML brings a more reproducible, transparent, and interoperable machine learning framework to the study of adaptive immune receptor repertoires (AIRR). Functionally, immuneML supports the application of ML to get insights out of AIRR data as well as the development of new AIRR-tailored learning methods. This is demonstrated by example workflows to reproduce a previous repertoire classification analysis, do prediction with a new ML method, and perform benchmarking using synthetic data. The platform is currently available as a Python package, through a Galaxy web interface, and as a Docker image.
PennAI, previously published by the Moore lab, is another tool for machine learning that is not domain specific and accessible for non-experts. PennAI facilitates machine learning for non-experts by offering supervised learning with a validated recommender system to help select the best method and parameters given the input data and past results. It is implemented with a user-friendly no-code web interface; all components can be set up locally using Docker compose.

dkNET Webinar
The dkNET (NIDDK Information Network) is inviting you to join them for a webinar "Multi-Omics Data Integration for Phenotype Prediction of Type-1 Diabetes" on Friday, April 9, 2021, 11 am - 12:00 pm PST. Omics techniques (e.g., i.e., transcriptomics, genomics, and epigenomics) report quantitative measures of more than tens of thousands of biological features and provide a more comprehensive molecular perspective of studied diabetes mechanisms compared to transitional approaches. Identifying representative molecular signatures from the tremendous number of biological features becomes a central problem in utilizing the data for clinical decision-making. Exploring the complex causal relations of the identified representative molecular signatures and diabetes phenotypes can be the most effective and efficient ways to improve the understanding of diabetes and assess the cause of diabetes for the new patients with already collected data influencing (e.g., TEDDY project). Presenter: Dr. Wei Zhang. Register HERE.
Diabetes Research Centers Virtual Seminar Series
To address the disruption in seminars & scientific interactions at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, nine NIDDK-sponsored Diabetes Research Centers (DRCs) and three Centers for Diabetes Translational Research (CDTRs) established a weekly Virtual Seminar series. The series has been well-received and will continue. Anyone can register for the seminars, which are free and open to the public (registration required).
