Dr. Karaduta Receives Collaborative Research Grant

Congratulations to Dr. Oleg Karaduta  in the Zybailov lab who has been selected to receive a Collaborative Research Grant from Burroughs Wellcome Fund for his project entitled:  “Subjunctive Interfaces: novel approach to support parallel setup, viewing and control of changes in the gut microbiota”.

This work is the result of joint effort between Dr. Karaduta and Dr. Zaman from University of Ontario Institute of Technology. The collaboration is set to utilize subjunctive interfaces for comparison and analysis of biomedical data using what-if scenarios. Creation of interfaces for parallel setup, viewing and controlling scenarios will have a strong contribution in the fields of biomedical and data visualization research. This could potentially lead to new diagnostic and predictive techniques.
