Past Seminars

Testing-based Measures for Finding Correspondence of Genomic Samples

  • Where: The Barber Conference Room at Charles Commons
  • When: November 17, 2015, 10:00
  • Jingyi Li, UCLA
  • A Genomics@JHU Seminar

Abstract Comparative genomics has gained increasing popularity in genomic research thanks to the development of high-throughput technologies including microarray and next-generation sequencing that have generated numerous genomic data. Many important scientific questions are related to understanding the conservation and differentiation of biological processes in different species. In this talk, I will introduce two testing based … Continued

Deep Learning Frameworks for Regulatory Genomics

  • Where: Barber Conference Room at Charles Commons, 10 E 33rd St. Baltimore, MD
  • When: September 29, 2015, 10:00
  • Anshul Kundaje of Stanford University
  • A Genomics@JHU Seminar

Abstract Deep neural network approaches such as Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) and Long-Term Short-Term Recurrent Neural Networks (LSTM-RNNs) have resulted in dramatic performance improvements for several learning tasks in Natural Language Processing, Speech Processing and Computer Vision. We investigate the power of deep learning methods in the context of regulatory genomics and develop novel learning … Continued
