Using Linear Dynamical Systems, we are trying to find a classification model to extract unsupervised features from video recordings of a group of patients undergoing deep brain stimulation (DBS) for treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD).

I proposed a method in which we use a network model to infer cliques of PPIs that are disrupted as each gene is silenced, then formulate an additive model of how the unknown PPI essentialities combine to form the observed protein essentialities. This process is then deconvoluted to recover the unknown essentialities of each PPI using a regularized solver.

I applied Machine Learning methods on RNA-sequence data and find a threshold to distinguish between expressed and non-expressed genes more accurately.

AMARETTO is ”an algorithm to identify cancer drivers by integrating a variety of omics data from cancer and normal tissue”. I’ve implemented an R version of the algorithm.
