The initial phase of this project is also intended to help GNS and NCI develop standards for the exchange of data to conduct future collaborations in other relevant mouse model systems. From this starting point, the groups envision the possibility of a combined experimental and computational work flow aimed at rapidly enabling the generation of hypotheses, testing these hypothesis in silico and in vivo, generating new confirmatory data, and rapidly cycling back to additional computational modeling, with the goal of accelerating the conversion of knowledge into new clinical options for cancer patients.
REFS(TM) is comprised of integrated machine learning algorithms and software that extract "causal" relationships from complex, multi-dimensional data and enable the simulation of billions of "what if?" hypotheses to explore novel unseen conditions and predictions forward in time. This model-centric discovery and simulation approach represents a paradigm shift in data analysis, leapfrogging existing approaches such as high-dimensional pattern matching. REFS(TM) is licensed to GNS Healthcare from Via Science.
