Machine Learning for Transcriptomics Data Workshop

The Systems Medicine program has recently initiated a collaboration with Pine Biotech an educational company that provides hands-on experiences in the use of BIG Data. This is very applicable to relevant areas like Personalized medicine and Drug-design.

The company hosted an in-person workshop on the use of Machine Learning for Transcriptomics Data in March to kick-off the collaboration.

The workshop was conducted by the company's CEO Elia Brodsky and Dr. Vladimir Galatenko from Tauber Bioinformatics Research Center, Israel.
