NVIDIA DLI – DEEP LEARNING FOR HEALTHCARE GENOMICS
DATE: 11 March 2019 (Monday)
TIME: 8.30am – 5.30pm
VENUE: Room 301, Level 3, Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre
REGISTRATION: Click here
INSTRUCTIONS TO PARTICIPANTS

IMPORTANT: Please follow these pre-workshop instructions.

Attendee Set Up Requirements
To maximize your training time during your DLI training, please follow the instructions below, before attending your first training session:

1. You must bring your own laptop in order to run the training. Please bring your laptop and its charger.
2. A current browser is needed. For optimal performance, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari for Macs are recommended. IE is operational but does not provide the best performance.
3. Create an account at http://courses.nvidia.com/join. Click the “Create account” link to create a new account. If you are told your account already exists, please try logging in instead. If you are asked to link your “NVIDIA Account” with your “Developer Account”, just follow the on-screen directions.
4. Ensure your laptop will run smoothly by going to http://websocketstest.com/. Make sure that WebSockets work by ensuring Websockets is supported under “Environment”. Additionally, make sure that “Data Receive”, “Data Send” and “Echo Test” all check Yes under “WebSockets”. If there are issues with WebSockets, try updating your browser.

If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].

ABSTRACT

Learn how to apply convolutional neural networks (CNNs) to detect chromosome co-deletion and search for motifs in genomic sequences.

This course teaches you how to apply deep learning to detect chromosome co-deletion and search for motifs in genomic sequences. You’ll learn how to:

• Understand the basics of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and how they work
• Apply CNNs to MRI scans of low-grade gliomas (LGGs) to determine 1p/19q chromosome co-deletion status
• Use the DragoNN toolkit to simulate genomic data and to search for motifs

Upon completion, you’ll be able to understand how CNNs work, evaluate MRI images using CNNs, and use real regulatory genomic data to research new motifs.
