Objectives: Modern machine learning techniques are proving to be extremely valuable for the analysis of data in computational biology problems. This course provides an introduction to many concepts, techniques, and algorithms in machine learning such as classification and linear regression and ending up with more recent topics such as support vector machines. The students will learn the fundamental concepts and modern machine learning methods as well as a more formal understanding. The underlying theme in the course is statistical inference as it provides the foundation for most of the methods covered. The students apply the knowledge on examples from biological data and techniques considering real biological examples.
