University of Birmingham Dubai to host Covid-19 Workshop: ‘AI to Leverage Biomedical Big Data’ to launch new bioinformatics programme

  • Online occasion on 1st May to debate COVID-19 analysis round AI and biomedical large knowledge
  • New MSc Bioinformatics to launch in September 2021

The University of Birmingham Dubai has appointed a programme lead for the brand new MSc in Bioinformatics, which is able to begin in September 2021. Dr Danesh Moradigaravand will probably be working a workshop this Saturday, 1st May, to introduce the programme for anybody keen on studying extra about bioinformatics.

Together with Professor Jean-Baptiste Cazier, Director of the Centre for Computational Biology (CCB) and Chair of Bioinformatics, Alan Turing Fellow, members will probably be taken by means of a spread of analysis initiatives undertaken by the Centre for Computational Biology (CCB) on the University of Birmingham. The multi-disciplinary centre has performed a central position within the pioneering scientific analysis on COVID-19, by offering descriptive, diagnostic and prescriptive data-driven insights to grasp the epidemiology of COVID-19 and determine threat elements on the inhabitants stage.

Professor Cazier and Dr Moradigaravand may even current the broad ongoing analysis applications in different subfields of well being knowledge science on the CCB, together with human inhabitants variety of Middle Eastern populations, and environmental bioinformatics.

As the primary face-to-face graduate MSc program of its sort within the Gulf area, the University of Birmingham Dubai’s MSc in Bioinformatics has been designed to handle the actual current wants and data gaps in interdisciplinary quantitative biomedical fields within the area.

Dr Moradigaravand involves Dubai from the University of Birmingham’s UK campus the place he has been lecturing in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology for the final three years. His analysis goals to offer a higher understanding of evolutionary dynamics of bacterial populations. To this finish, he develops theoretical evolutionary genetics fashions and computational frameworks and conducts genomic knowledge analyses by taking a machine studying strategy. In specific, the main target is on the evolution of antibiotic resistance in pathogens in scientific and non-clinical settings.

The occasion ‘AI to Leverage Biomedical Big Data will happen on-line Saturday 1st May from 3pm – 4pm. Find out extra concerning the occasion right here:
