„Genomic Intelligence“ – AI meets Genomics

In a virtual workshop on May 21, 2021 (11:00-15.00), we will explore the interest at our university to use AI to unravel genomic questions.

We are looking for contributions in form of either (1) availability of genomics data, ideally with specific challenges you wish to address, or (2) AI expertise that you would like to apply to genomics problems. Explicitly “newcomers” to genomics are welcome!
