Near-unsupervised computational methods for exploring 'omic' data

Grant number: DP150103512 | Funding period: 2015 - 2019



The project aims to investigate the recently proposed promising machine learning paradigm "Near Unsupervised Learning" by critically analysing and comparing existing methods. The project also aims to develop new algorithms in the broader spectrum of Big Data Analytics and their adaptation to the following three applications: species separation in metagenomic data; development of a model to relate genomic information to cancer drug sensitivity; and, the identification of distinct metabolite distribution patterns in mass spectrometry metabolomic data. The potential outcomes include increased understanding of the usefulness of fertilisers on different plant varieties and newly emerging plant di..
