  • Welcome to CBMF 4761 Computational Genomics, Spring 2004
  • Note that the correct lecture room is 535 Mudd -- the incorrect room is posted on some websites
  • We are planning to migrate the course materials to the Courseworks site -- however, we still need to sort out a problem of duplicate listings (COMS 4761 and CBMF 4761) for the course! Material is currently posted under the CBMF 4761 Courseworks site -- we'll work to make sure all students have access to it
  • Study guide for final test
Course description: In this course, we explore new computational approaches for studying genomic data, including biological sequence data and gene expression ("gene chip") data. Our focus is on machine learning techniques: probabilistic models such as hidden Markov models, learning algorithms like support vector machines and clustering for classification problems, Bayesian networks for inferring regulatory networks.
