Genomic Data Science and Clustering (Bioinformatics V)

Bioinformatics,

How do we infer which genes orchestrate various processes in the cell? How did humans migrate out of Africa and spread around the world? In this class, we will see that these two seemingly different questions can be addressed using similar algorithmic and machine learning techniques arising from the general problem of dividing data points into distinct clusters. In the first half of the course, we will introduce algorithms for clustering a group of objects into a collection of clusters based on their similarity, a classic problem in data science, and see how these algorithms can be applied to gene expression data. In the second half of the course, we will introduce another classic tool in data science called principal components analysis that can be used to preprocess multidimensional data before clustering in an effort to greatly reduce the number dimensions without losing much of the "signal" in the data. Finally, you will learn how to apply popular bioinformatics software tools to solve a real problem in clustering.

What people are saying

genomic data science

The first two week was very good, but for week 3 I don't see the content has any connection with Genomic Data Science.

soft k mean

This course goes deeply into developing hard and soft k mean clustering algorithms.

without some pre-knowledge

Just jump into this class without some pre-knowledge will be quite difficult.

just jump into

material are poor

very excellent course Material are poor... missing information about content asked in the quiz... the forum is not moderated... and Quiz 2 have a problem with inputs!

connection with genomic
