Prediction based on biological sequences (where Machine Learning meets Life Sciences)
Due to the rapid development of fast sequencing technologies, we now have tremendous amount data on different biological sequences. For example, the number of sequence-known proteins has...
- String Inference and (non)Lexicographic OrderingIn this lecture we will discuss two interesting but possibly less studied topics from string combinatorics. We will divide the talk into two parts. In the first part, we will briefly present...
- What Metaheuristics can do for you?Often we are provided with multiple options and we want to pick the best one. This is true for our daily life, but also for many scenarios in different branches of science and engineering (e.g.,...
