Biclustering-based Classiﬁcation of Clinical Expression Time Series: A Case Study in Patients with Multiple Sclerosis
In the last years the constant drive towards a more personalized medicine led to an increasing interest in temporal gene expression analyses. In fact, considering a temporal aspect represents a great advantage to better understand disease progression and treatment results at a molecular level. In this work, we analyse multiple gene expression time series in order to classify the response of Multiple Sclerosis patients to the standard treatment with Interferon-β , to which nearly half of the patients reveal a negative response. In this context, obtaining a highly predictive model of a patient’s response would deﬁnitely improve his quality of life,
avoiding useless and possibly harmful therapies for the non-responder group. We
propose new strategies for time series classiﬁcation based on biclustering. Preliminary results achieved a prediction accuracy of 94.23% and reveal potentialities to be further explored in classiﬁcation problems involving other (clinical) time series.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
The program and more details are available here.
