    23 Nov 2015 | Downloads | Contributor(s): Andria Reyes, Manuela Orjuela, Karen Schmitt, Andria Reyes, Grace Hillyer, Stephen Emerson

    Our overarching goal is to develop and establish a cancer genetics curriculum that is pertinent, culturally sensitive and understandable by a community population who is not English dominant and of a lower literacy level than that of the general New York City population. The curriculum will teach...

  10. Pathology Image Informatics Platform for visualization, analysis and management

    07 Oct 2015 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Metin Gurcan, Anant Madabhushi, Anne Martel

    This multi-institutional proposal seeks to expand on an existing, freely available pathology image viewer (Sedeen Image Viewer) to create a pathology informatics platform (PIIP) for managing, annotating, sharing, and quantitatively analyzing digital Pathology Imaging (DPI) data. Sedeen has become...

  11. Next-Generation Clustered Heat Maps (NG-­CHM)

    07 Oct 2015 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Weinstein John, Bradley Broom

    Clustered Heat Maps (CHMs) have been referred to as the ubiquitous visual icons of post-genomic biology -- the most frequent type of visualization for large molecular profiling databases. However, “traditional” CHMs are static images -- a serious limitation. Accordingly, we have now...
