Title: Mixed graphical models for metabolic biomarkers
Authors: Sofia Massa - University of Oxford (United Kingdom) [presenting]
Abstract: Metabolic profiling using NMR spectroscopy measures a range of circulating metabolites among other biomarkers measures. The association of these metabolic biomarkers with a phenotype of interest can help to understand the biological mechanism through which disease risk is influenced. We present a mixed graphical model for studying the association between metabolic biomarkers and a phenotype of interest. The potential of this approach will be illustrated in both simulated and real data settings.
