For six weeks, 44 undergraduate students from across the country met at Ann Arbor to wrestle with big data. The hands-on projects, in addition to lectures about statistics, informatics and professional development, are part of their training at 2017 Big Data Summer Institute hosted by our department. Among them, eleven students learned and applied methods to analyzing the Electronic Health Records (EHR) data. In four groups, they created their own data sets from Michigan Genomics Initiative that contains genomic information, longitudinal diagnoses, procedures and lab measurements and more to investigate heart failure, phenomewide association for lab values, Type 2 Diabetes and infectious diseases. It was great pleasure working with you!
