Talk

Machine Learning and Genetics

In the recent past, the field of genomics has made major progresses in pinpointing DNA features that are associated with certain diseases and conditions, such as heart illnesses, cancer, and psychiatric disorders. However, only a relatively small variance of these traits in the population is currently explained, which limits their applicability. In this talk, we will explore the importance of developing better models for such problems and how Machine Learning can help with these and related challenges.
