Vortrag von Prof. Dr. Jean-Philippe Vert im Rahmen unserer "Distinguished Speaker Series"

Am Mittwoch, 18. Januar 2017, wird Prof. Dr. Jean-Philippe Vert (PSL Research University, MINES ParisTech, Institut Curie, Paris) im Rahmen der ZBI "Distinguished Speaker Series" einen Vortrag zum Thema "Machine learning for patient stratification from genomic data" halten (Raum 001, ZBI (Gebäude E 2.1); Beginn: Punkt 17:00 Uhr). 


As the cost and throughput of genomic technologies reach a point where DNA sequencing is close to becoming a routine exam at the clinics, there is a lot of hope that treatments of diseases like cancer can dramatically improve by a digital revolution in medicine, where smart algorithms analyze « big medical data »  to help doctors take the best decisions for each patient. The application of machine learning-based techniques to genomic data raises however numerous computational and mathematical challenges that I will illustrate on a few examples of cancer patient stratification from gene expression or somatic mutation profiles.
