Michael Beer

Speaker: Michael A Beer, Department of Biomedical Engineering and McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University Date: November 2, 2018 Location: Biomed 200 Time: 1:00-2:00pm Abstract How DNA sequence specifies cell specific enhancer activity, the promoter targets of these enhancers, and the control of gene expression are all central questions in genomics.  Large datasets being generated to address these problems makes machine learning a natural approach. While Deep Neural Networks (DNN) and alternate methods have similar cross-fold validation rates, I…
