Talk Title: "A Novel Test for Trend in Rare Variant Burden of Functional Modules Implicated in Diseases"

Mon, 02/24/2020

In this paper, we introduce Carnelian, an end-to-end pipeline for metabolic functional profiling uniquely suited to finding functional trends across diverse datasets. Carnelian is able to find shared metabolic pathways, concordant functional dysbioses, and distinguish Enzyme Commission (EC)...
