mining of genetic + other data: collaboration?
In general my question is whether collaboration on the Understanding Society data is possible.
In particular: I am an expert in statistical learning methods (data mining) and preparing a grant proposal on the mining of high dimensional (many,many more variables than observations) multi-source data. For example, finding gene-environment interactions in combined genetic and survey data.
I have experience in working with genetic (transcriptomics) data and using Bioconductor. Yet, to make most out of the project, it would be necessary to collaborate with people who know the data well and who are able to interpret results in terms of gene-environment interactions. It would also be very useful to know on what to focus, eg obesity.
So, is there a way to collobarate on this specific topic of mining large and integrated data?
Thank you for your time spent on this issue.
