The workshop content is build around life science and bioinformatics examples.

Deep Learning for Life Sciences

Thursday 09 May, 2019 SURF, Utrecht, Netherlands

Deep learning has become a really hot topic for different areas of research in order to extract information and correlations between huge amounts of data that are otherwise very difficult or even effectively impossible to process in a purely analytic way. This workshop will begin with a morning session that will be presenting an overview of machine learning techniques, and later on introducing the basics concepts needed to understand artificial neural networks.

BioSB course: Machine Learning for Bioinformatics & Systems Biology

Monday 07 October, 2019 - Friday 11 October, 2019 tba

In this one-week course, the foundations of machine learning will be laid out and commonly used methods for unsupervised (clustering, dimensionality reduction, visualization) and supervised (mainly classification) learning will be explained in detail. Methods will be illustrated using recent examples from the fields of systems biology and bioinformatics. Methods discussed in the morning lectures will be put into practice during the afternoon computer lab sessions.

BioSB course: Constraint Based Modelling: introduction and advanced topics

Monday 18 November, 2019 - Friday 22 November, 2019

Constraint-based modeling is a powerful modeling methodology that is being used to model a diverse range of biological phenomena. These include both fundamental and applied questions relevant to biotechnology, microbiology and medicine. Central to constraint-based modeling is the use of genome-scale reconstructions that represent particular cellular functions as a biochemical reaction network. In this course, you will be introduced to …..
