Gaining Insights in Multiple Sclerosis by Causal Network Analysis

Network methods can reveal insights into disease biology and have been successfully applied to a variety of datasets. A particular field of network inference is causal inference, which focuses on inference that differentiates between likely causal and likely reactive relationships among variables, resulting in greater parsimony and biological relevance of the findings. In this webinar, Dr. Hayete presented the application of GNS Healthcare’s proprietary causal inference platform to the Orion MS dataset, discussing both the methodology and the generated findings.
