Professor Scott Schaus and Graduate Student Lisa Christadore are co-authors of:

Network-based prediction for sources of transcriptional dysregulation using latent pathway identification analysis

Published in PNAS in July 2011, the paper represents their collaborative work with researchers in the BU Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Professor Eric Kolaczyk and Graduate Student Lisa Pham.

It reports on the effectiveness of their novel method, latent pathway identification analysis (LPIA), in providing insights into systemic biological pathways and key cellular mechanisms that dictate disease states, drug response, and altered cellular function. The work was supported by NIH, NSF, and DOD.

Network-based prediction for sources of transcriptional dysregulation using latent pathway identification analysis.
