Research on the theory and application of integrated analysis of small sample data from multiple sources
With the popularization of new generation sequencing technology and the rapid development of single cell sequencing technology, multi-omics data at different scales are derived. With the rapid development of various new imaging technologies, multimodal image data under different imaging conditions are derived. Such multi-source data has problems such as small sample size, high dimension, multi-mode, cross-scale and multi-attribute missing, etc. It is of great scientific significance to integrate and analyze such multi-source heterogeneous data, which can provide computing tools for life computation and medical assisted diagnosis. Our lab takes the integration theory of multi-source heterogeneous data as the research center, and establishes the tensor spectral clustering theory framework for small sample learning, so as to realize the effective fusion of multi-source information. In order to realize the medical and health-oriented data mining as the research goal, the micro multi-omics and macro image group related application analysis is carried out for two important data sources: genomics data and medical images. This report will report the research progress of our laboratory in the above three aspects.
