The Multi-Omics Hub will focus on the use of big data about the genes, microorganisms, and metabolites to understand biological systems. WID’s expertise makes it an ideal home for the Epigenetics Initiative for the large campus community that studies the epigenome, and as such WID will organize meetings, seminars, mutli-PI …
In a paper in Cell Systems, Sushmita Roy and colleagues develop a probabilistic graphical model-based method, multi-species regulatory network learning that uses a phylogenetic framework to infer regulatory networks in multiple species simultaneously.
Tools for Discovery is a regular profile series that inspects the computer programs, gadgets, and methods behind WID’s ideas and discoveries.

Systems Biology researcher Sushmita Roy is leading an effort putting computational methods to work characterizing the gene regulatory networks responsible for cell differentiation.
The upshot of the study from researchers in the Epigenetics theme at WID is another indictment of the so-called Western diet, high in saturated fats, sugar, and red meat.
Systems Biology researchers Deborah Chasman and Sushmita Roy are using machine learning to identify virus and pathogenicity-specific regulatory networks which may guide the design of effective therapeutics for infectious diseases. The work is described in a recent paper in PLOS Computational Biology.
Epigenetics researcher Peter Lewis has linked a histone mutation to a rare pediatric bone cancer, an important step in understanding and treating more common cancers.
The Epigenetics theme at WID is putting mass spectrometry to use in new ways with specialized workflows designed to uncover the mysteries of chromatin.
John Denu, Epigenetics Theme leader, keeps UW-Madison on top of research in epigenetics.
Eddie Ruiz and Stephanie Seymour — both UW-Madison juniors affiliated with WID researchers — are launching The Journal of Undergraduate Science and Technology for the UW Madison campus
