Sciome is pleased to participate in the annual meeting of the SOT in New Orleans, LA in March 2016.  Our team’s work towards enhancing literature based toxicology research will be featured in a number of presentations:

  • B. E. Howard, J. Phillips, K. Miller, K. Thayer, R. Shah (2016). “Mining the Tox21 Literature with SWIFT-Review.” Society of Toxicology Meeting, New Orleans, Louisiana, March 13—17, 2016.
  • K. Miller, B. E. Howard, J. Phillips, M. Shah, D. Mav, R. Shah (2016). “SWIFT-Active Screener: Reducing Literature Screening Effort Through Machine Learning for Systematic Reviews.” Society of Toxicology Meeting, New Orleans, Louisiana, March 13—17, 2016.
  • B. E. Howard, K. Miller, J. Phillips, K. Thayer, R. Shah (2016). “Evaluation of the Literature Prioritization Capabilities of SWIFT-Review, a Tool for Conducting Systematic Reviews of Environmental Health Questions.” Society of Toxicology Meeting, New Orleans, Louisiana, March 13—17, 2016.

In addition, Sciome will also present the recent progress made in a collaborative bioinformatics study aimed at utilizing high throughput transcriptomics approaches for toxicity predictions: 

  • R. Shah et al. (2016). “High-throughput Transcriptomics via Select Sentinel Genes” Society of Toxicology Meeting, New Orleans, Louisiana, March 13—17, 2016.

And finally, Dr. Ruchir Shah will present an invited lecture at the Translational Epigenomics Symposium titled The Role of the Epigenome in Exposure Effects, Susceptibility, and Public Health.  The presentation titled “Integration of epigenomics data with other -omics datasets in translational toxicology studies” will be delivered on Monday March 14th 2016.
