Welcome to the Data Science Lab at Tokyo Institute of Technology!

Our research revolves around machine learning for high-dimensional data, computational statistics, data visualization, predictive modeling, performance evaluation, model selection, and knowledge extraction from large data sets. Most of our applied work centers on problems arising in the life/health sciences, such as genomic data analysis, and more recently also sports data analysis.

Geyer K.K., Munshia S.E., Vickers M., Squance M., Wilkinson T.J., Berrar D., Chaparroe C., Swain M.T., Hoffmann K.F. (2018) The anti-fecundity effect of 5-azacytidine (5-AzaC) on Schistosoma mansoni is linked to dis-regulated transcription, translation and stem cell activities. International Journal for Parasitology: Drugs and Drug Resistance. [pdf]

Highlights:
  • The ribonucleoside 5-azacytidine (5-AzaC) inhibits schistosome egg production.
  • 5-AzaC modulates schistosome transcription and translation.
  • Schistosome stem cell proliferation and maintenance are affected by 5-AzaC.
