This talk is an activity from the FEBS Junior Section, an initiative set up by students and young researchers from some of the FEBS Constituent Societies. Each month a Junior Section from one of the participant Societies organizes an online event on either a research or a career topic. This July talk is the seventh event of the new 2023 talk series, has an academic focus, and is organised by the ČSBMB Junior, the junior section of ČSBMB, the Czech Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Speaker: Dr. Panagiotis Alexiou, ERA Chair, University of Malta
Topic: Finding Hairpins in a Genomic Junkyard
Time: 20 July, 18:00 (CEST)

Talk summary

In this seminar we will explore the use of artificial neural networks in the task of identifying specific classes of functional genomic elements among large swathes of 'junk' DNA. A high level introduction to artificial neural networks and their application to biological questions will be followed by a concrete application used to identify novel small non coding RNA gene loci in genomes.
