Penn Bioinformatics Forum – Will Noble, PhD

November 8, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Machine learning and statistical challenges in protein mass spectrometry

Dr. Will Noble
Professor, Department of Genome Sciences &  Director, Computational Molecular Biology Program
University of Washington


Bioinformatics is driven in large part by technological innovation, such as the advances in DNA sequencing for genomics. The field of proteomics is undergoing a similar, technology-driven transformation, as the field begins to switch from data-dependent acquisition to data-independent acquisition. I will explain this transformation and its implications for our understanding of the dynamic proteome, giving examples of new machine learning and statistical challenges that arise from the resulting big data sets.

Reception to follow.
