Paper of the week

Theta publication titled SNP prioritization in targeted sequencing data associated with humoral immune responses in chicken is paper of the week at UPWr

They never have enough

Bartłomiej Hofman, Krzysztof Kotlarz, Jakub Liu, and Magda Mielczarek participated in the Autumn Conference of the PTBI with presentations (BH) and posters (the rest).

New arrivals

Theta is expanding spatially and scientifically … Dawid Slomian joins THETA and the Doctoral School at the Institute of Animal Breeding in Cracow.

A guide to Machine Learning

Modern molecular biological problems are solved using machine learning techniques that incredibly put insights into new, more complex cellular processes. The key to the application of ML in molecular biology is the understanding of basic algorithms and their potential and limitations.

Nature published an article with the fundamentals of machine learning for biologists. Enjoy diving into ML 😎.

moving out, moving in

The renovation of the Department of Genetics building has started. For next 1,5 years theta is a guest of the Institute of Animal Breeding, Division of Sheep and Fur Animals Breeding (clik) 🙂

Happy Programmers’ Day!
