Kaitlin uses R and machine learning to understand relationships between gut bacteria and human diseases like colon cancer.

• Geof Hannigan is presenting on the use of Neo4j with R to store data in a graph database and do graph-based analysis. Geof is a microbiology postdoctoral fellow at the University of Michigan. He uses graph analyses to better understand the networks of microbes in the human body and how they are associated with disease.
