MizzouForward Keynote: Single-cell multi-omics data modeling, analyses, and applications



April 14th | 4pm – 5pm

Ketcham Auditorium – W1005 Lafferre Hall

College of Engineering or ZOOM



Join us for “Single-cell multi-omics data modeling, analyses, and applications” a keynote presentation by Dr. Qin Ma, College of Engineering MizzouForward faculty candidate.  Dr. Ma will present on his research for 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.


Dr. Ma is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the Ohio State University (OSU). With a Ph.D. degree in computational science and 14 years of research experience in bioinformatics, he views himself as a well-trained bioinformatics researcher and computational modeler of biological systems. He has developed a strong and long-term interest in (1) understanding of how functional machinery is encoded in a genome, (2) elucidation of the underlying regulatory programs of complex diseases, and (3) development of enabling computational tools in support of the above scientific studies. His technical strength is in big-data mining and modeling with the advent of high-throughput Omics technologies, with an emphasis on single-cell sequencing data analyses. He currently has research grants from NIH (R01 and U24), NSF (IIBR and PGRP), and OSU as an independent investigator (PI/MPI). He is also the contact PI of data analysis core for a newly funded U54 project: TriState SenNet Tissue Mapping Center (TMC).


Dr. Ma’s lab focuses on the research of single-cell multi-omics data and their applications in complex diseases. They aim to develop novel DL methods and enabling tools to discover underlying molecular programs in diverse biological systems.
