Overview

Aim of this course is provide interface between machine learning techniques and biomedical applications. 

Description

This course is designed for students having wide range of background like biology, medical science, pharmacology, bioinformatics, computer science. This course is divided in following three sections; i) Major challenges in the field of biomedical science, ii) Introduction/implementation of machine learning techniques for developing prediction models, and iii) solving biomedical problems using machine learning techniques. This course will be help students in developing  novel methods for solving real-life problems in the field of biological and health sciences. Attempt will made to bridge gap between students and world class researchers, studentds will be exposed to highly accurate methods based on machine learning techniques (research papers).
