About Course

The field of biological sciences is becoming increasingly information-intensive and data-rich. For example, the growing availability of omics data or clinical measurements from humans promises a better understanding of the important questions in biology. However, the complexity and high-dimensionality of these biological data make it difficult to pull out mechanisms from the data. Machine Learning techniques promise to be useful tools for resolving such questions in biology because they provide a mathematical framework to analyse complex and vast biological data. In turn, the unique computational and mathematical challenges posed by biological data may ultimately advance the field of machine learning as well. This course will cover basics of the Python programming language for biological data wrangling and use of machine learning to that. This course is intended to give learner a conceptual overview of machine learning algorithms and hands on experience of the same.

What students say about us

ReadMyCourse is a one stop destination for understanding courses related to research and new technology With great qualified instructors and 24X7 doubts support, difficult topics are presented in a simplified manner.

Dr. Rimanpreet Kaur | Bioanalyst
Machine learning course

I had a great learning experience with ReadMyCourse. The concepts were clearly explained by the teachers, especially the way the course was simplified and presented, makes it more fun and easy. I got a job offer as Bioanalyst.

Anup Singh | IISC
NGS course

It is quite understandable for me. I have some background in programming language it is a plus point, apart from it also its quite easy to understand with live classes. Course was more practical and with live coding examples.
