OverviewDo you want to learn how to develop models to predict protein function? Do you want analyse and exploit the growing volume of biological data? Do you want to develop basic skills in novel machine learning approaches and big data technologies?
This workshop is aimed at researchers and bioinformaticians from across industry and academia who are looking to leverage machine learning approaches in protein function prediction. It will guide participants through the use of big data to build analytical workflows on publically-available biological data.
Participants will require prior experience in the use of the command line interface and confidence in a programming language to fully benefit from the workshop. Please contact us if you have any questions about the course's suitability before you apply.
