Qualification Goals

Students will

  • Become familiar with typical tumor biology problems (e.g., analysis of gene expression patterns, tumor mutations, single-cell analytics of cellular tumor composition, spatial profiling, HTGedge-Seq) and develop an understanding of the special requirements and problems that arise when dealing with biomedical sequencing data.
  • Apply data science methods, data mining and machine learning techniques to analyze experimental and spatially-separated NGS and gene expression data and public tumor biology research data (TCGA, DepMap, ...).
  • Acquire the skills to critically interpret tumor biology research data and to plan, implement and perform Data Science analyses in tumor research.
  • Develop, implement, and establish specialized analysis software needed in tumor biology and extend the existing range of methods.
