Special Session
Special Session on
Machine Learning in Bioinformatics
 - MLB 2022

9 - 11 February, 2022

Within the 15th International Joint Conference on Biomedical Engineering Systems and Technologies - BIOSTEC 2022


Paulo Ambrosio
Universidade Estadual de Santa Cruz

Brief Bio
Paulo Eduardo Ambrosio is a Doctor in Medical Sciences. His research interests are Computational Biology and Pattern Recognition.


One of the main problems dealt with by bioinformatics is to analyze the expression levels of various genes at once to discover his function, mainly using clustering techniques, which aim to group genes of similar expression tendencies together. The big problem in these researches is the huge amount of data that needs to be processed simultaneously, which require the development of new techniques and algorithms, principally on machine learning advances. This special session aims to show recent advances in machine learning applied to bioinformatic problems, presenting new techniques of processing, automated analysis and pattern classification. It also intends to be a forum for sharing experiences between specialists, researchers and beginners in the area, presenting and discussing relevant ideas.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Clustering algorithms
  • Biclustering Algorithms
  • Deep Learning Applied to Genetic Data
  • New Machine Learning Techniques
