DoMiNO Workshop on Data Mining of Chemical Mixtures and Health

February 9, 2018


About the event

The DoMiNO research team is hosting a hands-on workshop on the morning of Friday, February 9th at Carleton University to introduce participants to the VizAR software tool which supports users in the development of data mining based hypotheses about the relationship between chemical mixtures and adverse birth outcomes (ABOs). This new approach and tool, developed by the interdisciplinary research team, presents new ways of approaching the investigation of links between pollutant exposures and illnesses.

The workshop will assist attendees in understanding the potential of Vizar for hypothesis generation, and teach the process by which users can discover associations between airborne chemicals and adverse birth outcomes relevant to their research. It is intended for government researchers, risk assessors, regulators and those working with environmental and/or health data, as well as researchers in academia and non-governmental sectors. The half-day workshop is free of charge and will include hands-on exploration of the data software.

Information on the research project at the University of Alberta called DoMiNO – Data Mining and Neonatal Outcomes can be found here.
