Outline for Night 2
Task 4. An Introduction to molecular biomarkers (20 min)
Learning Objective: Discuss the potential impact of molecular biomarkers on a larger cohort. Format: Short Lecture (15 min) + Questions (5 min)
Task 5. Machine Learning/Modeling Tutorial (60 min)
Learning Objective: Use multiple machine methods (through the
caret package) to explore subgroups and their CVD risk in the data. How well do we predict? What variables are useful in predicting CVD? How can we quantify this as a risk score? Format: Short Lecture (10 minutes) + Interactive Workshop (50 minutes). Output: Error + Risk Score
Task 6. Discussion (60 min)
Learning objective: Students give a 1 minute presentation to attempt to answer the questions: Did we do any better? Is genetic testing worth it?
