CS 598 JP - Special Topics - Machine Lrning Computation Bio
Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in computer science intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.
All class meetings will be online and synchronous. This course focuses on modern machine learning techniques in computational biology, including probabilistic modeling, feature selection, graphical models, approximate inference and learning, Monte Carlo methods and neural networks. Students will learn the development of the theoretical concepts for these methods and the applications of these methods to a variety of problems in computational biology. This course is appropriate for graduate students in computer science, bioengineering, mathematics and statistics. Familiarity with basic statistics, probability and algorithms is expected.
