The center will develop the algorithms, software, and system architecture needed by biomedical scientists seeking to discover and represent causality using their large and diverse data sets.
We selected 3 very different biomedical problems to use as test beds for our algorithms and to drive the development of new algorithms that meet the needs of biomedical researchers.
We are implementing an integrated set of methods that support the graphical representation, discovery, and application of causal knowledge from large and complex biomedical data (see samples of structural causal
The Center for Causal Discovery is working together with other BD2K Centers to promote novel methods to analyze Big Data and to explore interoperability with tools and software developed by
To further support you in using our Causal Discovery tools, we have opened the CCD Helpdesk for questions on the use of Tetrad and other CCD tools. The helpdesk will be open from 12:00 noon – 1:00 PM (EST) every weekday and Saturday. To reach us, you can: Send an […]
