Data mining holds the promise to improve our understanding of dynamics of complex systems such as the human metabolome (i.e., the complete set of small biochemical compounds in the human body) by discovering the underlying patterns, i.e., subsystems, in data collected from these systems. However, discovering those patterns and understanding their evolution in time is a challenging task. The complexity of the systems requires collection of both time-evolving and static data from multiple sources using different technologies recording the behavior of the system from complementary viewpoints. This project will formulate a mathematical framework for analysis of such multi-modal data sets, derive efficient algorithms and apply the developed methods on unique data sets, primarily focusing on the analysis of longitudinal metabolomics measurements and genetics information from the COPSAC2000 cohort.
The project is in collaboration between Simula Metropolitan Center for Digital Engineering (SimulaMet), University of Copenhagen, University of Amsterdam and COPSAC (Danish Pediatric Asthma Centre, Copenhagen). All positions are based at SimulaMet in Oslo, Norway and include short or long-term stays with the partners.
