Regulatory Genomics and Epigenomics aim to understand the way gene expression is controlled in cells by understanding the sequence elements and organization that govern this expression. Over the last decade this field has been revolutionized by new experimental data stemming from massively parallel sequencing technologies. Classical computational biology techniques, such as algorithms for motif discovery at the sequence level, are facing challenges on a new scale. At the same time, diverse data types need to be analyzed in an integrative manner, leading to challenging machine learning problems on large and noisy data sets. The long term goal is the development of models explaining how DNA sequence is read out differently under different circumstances, with the static sequence thus giving rise to highly dynamic responses.

All talks will be recorded. Enquiries may be sent to the organizers workshop_genomics2 [at] lists [dot] simons [dot] berkeley [dot] edu (at this address.)
