NIGMS Director's Early-Career Investigator Lecture: Sex-Biased Genome Evolution
NIGMS Director's Early-Career Investigator Lecture 2019 If you ’ re merely counting chromosomes, men and women aren ’ t that different. We all have DNA packaged into 23 pairs of chromosomes. Just one of these pairs — the sex chromosomes known as X and Y — is inherited differently in males and females. In general, women have two X chromosomes (XX), and men have one X and one Y chromosome (XY). Today, the human X chromosome is much larger than the human Y chromosome. But that wasn ’ t always the case. Evidence indicates that, in mammals prior to about 200 million years ago, X and Y were the same...

Pathways to Prevention Workshop: Methods for Evaluating Natural Experiments in Obesity (Day 2)
Obesity is a major contributor to serious health conditions in children and adults. The prevalence of obesity in the United States and globally has grown rapidly in the last three decades; thus, there is a pressing need to help people achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Obesity is commonly defined as having a body mass index (BMI) greater than or equal to 30. In 2014, more than one-third (37.7%) of U.S. adults (Flegal, 2016 ) and 17% of U.S. children and young adults under the age of 20 (Ogden, 2016 ) met this definition, accounting for about 55% of the total U.S. population.

High-Throughput Machine Learning from EHR Data
The widespread use of electronic health records and the many recent successes of machine learning raise at least two natural questions. How well can future health events of patients be predicted from EHR data, at various lengths of time in advance? And how can such predictions improve human health? This talk answers the first question via a new approach called " high-throughput machine learning, " and it speculates about answers to the second question. In particular, this talk argues that many healthcare applications require not just accurate prediction, but accurate prediction by causally-faithful models. Causal...

Predicting an Ordinal Response Using Features from High-Throughput Genomic Assays
National Library of Medicine Informatics Lecture Series Ordinal scales are commonly used to measure health status and disease related outcomes. An ordinal outcome takes on one of several categorical levels where there is a clear ordering of the categorical levels but no intrinsic numerical relationship between them. As an example, economic status is often recorded as an ordinal outcome taking on three categorical levels of low, medium, and high income. Notable examples in medicine include stage of cancer, grading the severity of an adverse event, and response of target lesions to chemotherapy. In addition, repeated mea...

Mediating variables have a long and important history in theoretical and applied research, because they describe how and why two variables are related. One common example is the study of the mediating processes that explain how a prevention or treatment program achieves its effects on an outcome variable. If the active ingredients are identified, then interventions can be made more powerful and more efficient. Other mediating variable examples include how a risk fa...

Many factors have been suggested as contributors to irreproducible biomedical research, including poor study design, analytic instability of measurement methods, sloppy data handling, inappropriate and misleading statistical analysis methods, improper reporting or interpretation of results, and, on rar...

Persistent neural activity is a sustained increase or suppression of action potential firing elicited by a brief sensory stimulus or motor command. Across the population of participating neurons, the pattern of sustained changes in action potential firing is correlated with the information held in short term memory, while disruption of persistent activity produces deficits in memory-guided behavior. These characteristics suggest that the memory is act...
