Quartz Bio publication -  Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Clustering in Systemic Autoimmune Diseases (by Thomas Charlon)


We are happy to annouce the publication of the manuscript "Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Clustering in Systemic Autoimmune Diseases" by Thomas Charlon, published in August in PLOS ONE. 

The article describes a clustering methodology aimed at removing the ancenstry bias in genetic analyses and uncovering disease-relevant traits. The project was conducted as part of the PRECISESADS consortium which is developping a new, biomarker-based, classification for inflammatory auto-immune disease.



Quartz Bio will be involved in the R Consortium ISC Code Coverage Working Group

Karl Forner, CIO of Quartz Bio has been invited to join the Code Coverage Working Group as part of the R Consortium, based on his previous work and contributions to R-coverage.
Code Coverage refers to the amount of code (for example in an R package) that is tested. Testing ensures that the code is fit for use. Therefore knowing what is actually being tested (covered) is essential to evaluate the robustness of software.
