Understanding gene regulation through deep learning

"Deep learning is a powerful approach to find patterns in DNA and relate them to regulatory functions, such as transcription factor binding or mRNA expression. However, it remains difficult to understand why they make any given prediction, which has earned them a reputation as a black box. My lab develops methods to interrogate deep learning models to access information they learn, with the broader aim of elucidating new insights into biological processes."
~ Dr. Peter Koo - Assistant Professor, Cancer Center Member
These short virtual lectures for high school and public audiences are your chance to learn about research at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory!

Fans of the DNA Learning Center all have one thing in common, a fascination with science and all things DNA! With some of our in-person activities limited, we have created an opportunity to learn that is informative and fits into any schedule. These virtual events will be 30 minutes with time for your questions. Each month we will feature CSHL scientists who will share their stories with you, including:

  • What got them interested in science?
  • What are the most exciting things they are working on?
  • What challenges did they overcome to achieve a career in research?

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is consistently ranked one of the world’s premier research institutions. Join us for this opportunity to learn and be inspired by world-class scientists.
