Multi-omics technologies, and in particular those with single-cell and spatial resolution, provide unique opportunities to study deregulation of intra- and inter-cellular processes in cancer and other diseases. In this talk I will present recent methods and applications from our group towards this aim, with a focus is on computational approaches that combine data with biological knowledge within statistical and machine learning methods. This combination allows us to increase both the statistical power of our approaches and the mechanistic interpretability of the results. I will also discuss the value to perform perturbation studies, combined with mathematical modeling, to increase our understanding and therapeutic opportunities. Finally, I will show how, using novel microfluidics-based technologies, this approach can also be applied directly to biopsies, allowing to build mechanistic models for individual cancer patients, and use these models to propose new therapies.
