Special Session
Advances in Machine Learning Techniques Applied to Gene Expression Data - MLGED 2018

19 - 21 January, 2018 - Funchal, Madeira, Portugal

Within the 9th International Conference on Bioinformatics Models, Methods and Algorithms - BIOINFORMATICS 2018

SCOPE

Gene expression is a measurement of expression levels of various genes at once, with the intent to discover his function. One way to analyze this expression data is through clustering techniques, which aim to group genes of similar expression tendencies together. The current big problem in this research area is the huge amount of data that needs to be processed simultaneously, which require the development of new techniques and algorithms, principally on machine learning advances. This special session aims to show recent advances in the area, presenting new techniques of processing, automated analysis and pattern classification. It also intends to be a forum for sharing experiences between specialists, researchers and beginners in the area, presenting and discussing relevant ideas.

 

TOPICS:
- Clustering algorithms;
- Biclustering algorithms;
- Automated gene expression analysis;
- Deep learning applied to genetic data;
- New machine learning techniques.
