5 Date Institue Title Budget Position Description USA-National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (RO1HL092173, in part); Predict Warfarin Dosage for African Americans $ Researche r With complex traits and diseases having potential genetic contributions of thousands of genetic factors, and with current genotyping arrays consisting of millions of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), powerful high-dimensional statistical techniques are needed to comprehensively model the genetic variance. Machine learning techniques have many advantages including lack of parametric assumptions, and high power and flexibility. Therefore I have used different machine learning-data mining algorithms to find new model on predicting Warafarin dose EU Research on Truck Driver s Behaviour Analyst In this project, we evaluate the behavior of truck drivers in Turkey. There lots of problems on the roads: road conditions, driver s education etc. I analyzed two surveys in this project. I proposed two different driver class to the project manager. These are very important to understand the driver s behavior The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) Finding Responsible Genes for Limb- Girdle Disease TL Scholar- Analyst In the project, in order to identify novel chromosomal regions responsible for the disease, genome-wide genotyping and homozygosity mapping will be carried out in these families with the high resolution 250 NspI SNP arrays and candidate genes harbouring in those chromosomal regions will be analyzed for mutations. If we detect more than one chromosomal loci in these LGMD2 families, only one of them will be selected for identifying a novel mutant gene/mutation by using whole exome sequencing technology. I have analyzed clinical and genetic factors with Data Mining methods. I tried to figure out many interactions between factors. This results may have use on disease treatment The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) Cost-Effective Analysis of Library of Hacettepe University s Electronic Databases TL Scholar- Analyst The aim of this study is to investigate how efficiently the full text accessible electronic databases and journals of Hacettepe University Libraries are used. For this purpose the usage data obtained from COUNTER Software regarding to the electronic databases of Hacettepe University Libraries subscribed in 2007 were examined. Moreover, the results obtained from the questionnaire survey conducted on a random sample of academic staff, the data obtained from the citations of publications originated from Hacettepe University and the costs of the databases were evaluated Turkish Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology Genetic Data Mining Tool TL General Director In this project, I worked on as a project general manager. I have tried to create a new computer software that analyze genetic data with data mining method. This tool has many methods like clustering, classification and descriptive data mining. We have focused on reduce the costs of genetic material with extract more information from existed data Hacettepe Technopolis A New Hospital Data Mining Approaches TL General Director In this project, I and my engineering team are try to analyze the hospital databases with data mining method. We aimed to reduce the cost of diagnostic tests with finding relevant tests. Motivation is come from Hacettepe University s president. Project is still continue.
