The Reactome Knowledgebase provides a convenient example to illustrate strategies used to assemble such a reaction space based on manually curated experimental data, approaches to semiautomated extension of these manual annotations to infer annotations for a large fraction of a species? proteins, and the use of networks of functional annotations to infer pathway relationships among variant proteins that have been associated with disease risk through genome-wide surveys, resequencing studies of tumors, and high-throughput surveys of gene expression patterns." , Peter D'Eustacio, Ph D Professor NYUSOM , 1:30 PM, Skirball 3rd Fl Seminar Room - Contact Jeanne Webster at 212-263-2194 or at
  Population Health - Division of Biostatistics:   Simultaneous Confidence bands for survival functions in Cox regression framework --- "Abstract: Cox regression combined with semiparametric random censorship models provides a powerful framework for obtaining improved parameter estimates [Mondal and Subramanian (2014). Model Assisted Cox Regression, Journal of Multivariate Analysis, Volume 123, 281-303]. Here we exploit this methodology to construct several new simultaneous confidence bands (SCBs) for subject-specific survival curves. Simulation results are presented to compare the performance of the proposed SCBs with competing ones that are based only on standard Cox. The new SCBs provide correct empirical coverage and are more informative. The proposed methods provide easy extensions for the case when censoring indicators may be missing for a subset of study subjects." , Sundarraman Subramanian, Ph.D. Associate Professor New Jersey Institute of Technology , 3:00 PM, 650 First Avenue, 5th Floor Conference Room - Contact Bernice Townsend at 212-263-0363 or at
