2021 ADC – Data analysis for knowledge discovery in bioinformatics

Phoebe Chen, La Trobe University


Solving modern biomedical problems, especially those involving genome data, requires advanced computational and analytical methods. The huge quantities of data and escalating demands of modern biomedical research increasingly require the sophistication and power of computational techniques for their knowledge discovery. In this talk, I will demonstrate to use data analysis techniques for knowledge mining in bioinformatics applications.
