Differential Dose Response – Some More Exploration

This is a follow on to my previous post that described a recent paper where we explored a few ways to characterize the differential activity of small molecules in dose response screens. In this post I wanted to highlight some aspects of this type of analysis that didn’t make it into the final paper. TL;DR […]

Analysing Differential Activity in Dose Response Screens

My colleagues and I recently published a paper where we explored a few methods to identify differential behavior in dose response screens. While there is an extensive literature about analyzing differential effects in genomic data (e.g. mciroarrays, RNAseq), these methods are based on distributional assumptions that holds for genomic data. This is not necessarily the […]

Summarizing Collections of Curves

I was browsing live notes from the recent IEEE conference on visualization and came across a paper about functional boxplots. The idea is an extension of the boxplot visualization (shown alongside), to a set of functions. Intuitively, one can think of a functional box plot as specific envelopes for a set of functions. The construction […]
