Center for Causal Discovery

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.

Biomedical Science

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.

Data Science

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

Collaboration and Outreach

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
