NIH National Human Genome Research Institute’s Machine Learning in Genomics Virtual Workshop

April 13-14, 2021, 11:00 AM-4:00 PM

Register for the event

Workshop agenda

The NHGRI Genomic Data Science Working Group of the National Advisory Council for Human Genome Research is hosting this workshop to stimulate discussion around the opportunities and obstacles underlying the application of machine learning (ML) methods to basic genome sciences and genomic medicine, to define the key scientific topic areas in genomics that could benefit from ML analyses. The data-intensive fields of genomics and ML are in an early stage of convergence. This workshop will include a combination of lectures from ML, genomics, and ethics researchers with substantial time set aside for virtual Q&A sessions in which all attendees, irrespective of expertise and background, are encouraged to participate. Topics of interest within genomics cover the full spectrum of basic and clinical research. The workshop will also focus on the ethical aspects of ML applications to genomics data. ML scientists without any connection to genomics are as welcome to join as those already applying their analytical methods to genomic data.
