Bioinformatics: What Is a Support Vector Machine? Nov. 19

The Bioinformatics Journal Club presents What is a support vector machine? on Tuesday, Nov. 19, at 4:35 p.m. in the Academic and Research Center (ARC)  321. The discussion leader is Al-Ouran Rami.

“Support vector machines (SVMs) are becoming popular in a wide variety of biological applications. But, what exactly are SVMs and how do they work? And what are their most promising applications in the life sciences?” asks William S. Noble, author of article “What is a Support Vector Machine?” in Nature.

The Bioinformatics Journal Club provides a discussion forum for research articles from the premier journals and conferences in the field of computational biology.  The forum is open to all members of the Ohio University community.  Please email suggestions for discussion topics to Discussion questions and more at the Bioinformatics website.

Upcoming Events

Meetings are Tuesdays from 4:35 to 5:25 p.m. in ARC 321.
