Abstract: Next generation “omics” tools are harbingers of the golden age of biology. Biologists are on the cusp of breaking through the veil of complexity surrounding the emergent properties of complex biological systems. However these same rapid technological advances are also transforming the study of biology into a data intensive science. The ever growing gap between data and theory necessitates that biologists become familiar with mathematical and computational methods in order to fully understand their experimental results.

This presentation is meant to serve as brief overview of multivariate data visualization and analysis methods applied on biological data sets. Major topics will include an overview of multivariate data proprieties, data pre-treatment, dimensional or complexity reduction methods, predictive modeling and systems analysis.

 Bio: Dmitry Grapov is a former DEB NIH fellow and designer of the freely available data exploration and visualization software, imDEV (https://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/imdev).  His research centers on the application of metabolomics to the study of complex physiological states such as type 2 diabetes, obesity and atherosclerosis.
