Thursday 14th March in L2.4Understanding Biology at omics and structural levelsDr Chichau Miau, Cambridge
The talk entitled "Understanding Biology at omics and structural levels" will cover some research work in single cell RNA-seq and computational structural biology. The single cell RNA-seq studies, which are parts of the Human Cell Atlas project, include understanding the sequencing platform, using artificial intelligence to correct the error in single cell experiments and an automatic cell type related clustering method. In addition, an application to the liver cell analysis will demonstrate how to understand the cell to cell variability, cell-cell interaction and cell development using single cell RNA-seq. The computational structural biology part will introduce RNA-Puzzles, which is a world-wide contest in RNA 3D structure prediction, and protein structure/function prediction.
