Knowledge-Based Systems in Bioinformatics Short Course to be part of Bio-IT World Asia Conference
Conference Short Course on Knowledge-Based Systems in Bioinformatics
About the Knowledge-Based Systems in Bioinformatics Short Course:
Knowledge-based systems (KBS) are increasingly used for the analysis of biological systems and complex biomedical applications. Biomedical KBS integrate quantities of complex biomedical data, existing knowledge, and automated analysis methods. Applications of biomedical KBS include scientific discovery, formulation of hypotheses, design of experiments, drug discovery and design, and various clinical applications. This course addresses theoretical and practical aspects of KBS and will be supported by selected examples from bioinformatics applications in cancer and immunology.
