5- Data is how we roll

Mar 27, 2019

So I recently crawled out of the rut I was in with regards to my senior project. Glad to be among the living again! Couple updates:

So I FINALLY got that large dataset downloaded, and was able to visualize it. I condensed it by taking the medians of each tissue type for every gene, and further normalized the dataset with a log2 transformation and centered it by row (gene) medians. Doesn’t sound like much, but the genomics cluster practically ruined my life with problems last week. Still skeptical about the reliability of cluster computing…

I also read a little more about the vectorizer for my patient classifier tool, and will hopefully be making more progress on that next week …hopefully. 🙂

Next week I’ll be presenting my progress to the PI of the lab, and this will help me gain some insight into my next steps as well. Wish me luck!

    Glad to see you fixed your problems! What exactly did you learn about the vectorizer?

    I always assumed that sorting through the data would be the hardest part of your project. The analysis of the useful data will likely come easy to you. It seems that if you make it past this hurdle, you’re free and clear! I love the cartoons!
