Bioinformatics for Immuno-Oncology and Translational Research
Bioinformatics for Immuno-Oncology and Translational Research - a short course.
In this course, we cover major applications of Big Data, bioinformatics and systems biology for immuno-oncology research and development with major focus on translational research. We provide a User’s Guide to open access online resources and tools as well as overview of state-of-the-art methodologies and approaches to leveraging and integrating of a vast amount of information available through genome-wide molecular profiling, next-generation sequencing, etc. for the immuno-oncology applications. Several important immuno-oncology focus areas will be discussed in detail, such as computational immunophenotyping of tumor samples, HLA typing based on sequencing data, as well as computational methodologies for immunotherapy selection. Several case studies and brief live demos with hands-on exercises will be presented to illustrate the importance and added value of integrative bioinformatics analysis for immuno-oncology.
