Advances in Machine Learning Techniques Applied to Gene Expression Data - MLGED 2018

19 - 21 January, 2018 - Funchal, Madeira, Portugal 

Within the 9th International Conference on Bioinformatics Models, Methods and Algorithms - BIOINFORMATICS 2018 




Gene expression is a measurement of expression levels of various genes at once, with the intent to discover his function. One way to analyze this expression data is through clustering techniques, which aim to group genes of similar expression tendencies together. The current big problem in this research area 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 the area, 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.

Brief Bio

Doctor in Medical Sciences. Research interest: Computational Biology, Pattern Recognition.



The purpose of the International Conference on Bioinformatics Models, Methods and Algorithms is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the application of computational systems, algorithmic concepts and information technologies to address challenging problems in Biomedical research with a particular focus on the emerging problems in Bioinformatics and computational biology. There is a tremendous need to explore how mathematical, statistical and computational models can be used to better understand biological processes and systems, while developing new methodologies and tools to analysis the massive currently-available biological data. Areas of interest to this community include systems biology, sequence analysis, biostatistics, image analysis, network and graph models, scientific data management and data mining, machine learning, pattern recognition, computational evolutionary biology, computational genomics and proteomics, and related areas.

BIOINFORMATICS encourages authors to submit papers to one of the main topics indicated below, describing original work, including methods, techniques, advanced prototypes, applications, systems, tools or survey papers, reporting research results and/or indicating future directions. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference by one of the authors and published in the proceedings. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions.
The proceedings will be indexed by several major international indexers.
Special sessions are also welcome. Please contact the secretariat for further information on how to propose a special session.
