Biomedical research often seeks to identify predictive biomarkers from clinical research data in hopes of uncovering their correlation with therapeutic efficacy.  Biomarkers can be utilized to: 

  • Predict the outcome of a therapy ahead of time. 
  • Enable personalized patient care. 

The critical aspect of biomarker discovery is the unbiased analysis of large and complex data sets. 

Join us on March 17 at 2:00 pm EST | 11:00 am PST to learn how the power of CITRUS can identify and assign statistical significance to biological signatures that differentiate samples across multiple groups.  We will showcase the power of CITRUS in a case study comprised of multi-parameter flow cytometric data. 

Dr. Zaida Vergara, field application scientist at Beckman Coulter Life Sciences, will share:  

  • What is the power of CITRUS 
  • How to set up a predictive analysis in CITRUS 
  • How to identify and characterize biologically meaningful signatures, predictive biomarkers
