Nikolay Oskolkov

I am a SciLifeLab bioinformatician from Lund University doing various types of analyses in Computational Biology. Originally from Theoretical Physics (PhD 2007), switched to Biological and Life Sciences 2012, worked in biomedical research now expanding towards evolutionary science and data science


Growing amounts of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data in Life Sciences provide new opportunities as well as pose a number of analytical challenges for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. One of them is application of advanced methodologies such as Machine and Deep Learning that are ideally suited to address the massive amounts of data. In this webinar I will give an overview of some applications of Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) to Single Cell Genomics, Microscopy Imaging and Genomics / Ancient DNA research areas.
