Apr 5 2014: Dr. Luis Rueda has been recently obtained his NSERC Discovery Grant for five years on a project titled "Integrative machine learning methods for prediction of protein-protein interactions and analysis of the dynamics of interactomes".
Oct 31 2013:Luis Rueda has been awarded a Seeds4Hope grant for two years from the Windsor-Essex County Cancer Centre Foundation, along with his collaborators Dora Cavallo-Medvev and Lisa Porter from Biological Sciences and Alioune Ngom from the School of Computer Science. The project titled "Transcriptomic analysis of prostate cancer using RNA-seq data" focuses on understanding the regulatory mechanisms of gene expression in prostate cancer using machine learning algorithms on RNA-seq data. One of the aims is to find novel ways in which genes are expressed in prostate cancer, or alternative splicing, and the corresponding protein products as biomarkers. Machine learning algorithms will also help distinguish among different types of prostate cancer such as low or high-risk, localized or metastatic and benign tumours, and progression.
