Knowledge-based Interpretation of Gene Expression Array Studies

Lawrence Hunter
Director, Center for Computational Pharmacology
University of Colorado Health Sciences Center

The new era of high throughput molecular instrumentation is generating important biomedical data at a rapidly increasing rate. The analysis and interpretation of this data must transcend traditional approaches to statistical hypothesis testing, toward more general computational support for biomedical discovery. In this talk I will argue that knowledge-based approaches, ranging from graphical statistical models with informative priors, to rule-based inference, to knowledge-based information extraction from natural language are the best way to meet this key challenge of the 21st century.
