BiRG lab meetings for Spring, 2022 will be held via WebEx. Meetings take place on Thursdays at 10:00 am. All Wright State University students (graduate and undergraduate), faculty and staff with an interest in bioinformatics and machine learning research are welcome to join us. Contact Dr. Michael Raymer for an invitation to the WebEx meetings. Click here for the current BiRG lab meeting schedule.
About the BiRG
If you don’t work on important problems, it’s not likely that you’ll do important work. — Richard Hamming
From the encoding of heritable information in DNA to the structure and function of proteins, the students and faculty of the BiRG lab use the tools of machine learning and biologically-inspired algorithms to explore a broad range of scientific questions. Our research interests include pattern analysis in high-dimensionality data sets, evolutionary computation and optimization, machine learning, and especially deep learning models. We apply these techniques to problems spanning the fields of metabolomics, genomics, molecular evolution, protein structure modeling, sensors and computer vision, and natural language processing.
