On this page we provide information about lectures and seminars we are currently offering.
The lecture Computational Diagnostics is a 5 cr course offered at the Tampere University of Technology.
After completing the course, the student gained a basic understanding of the definition and the meaning of computational diagnostics and its utility for biomedical research. Case studies will be discussed illustrating the interplay between computational and statistical methods that are applied to large-scale and high-dimensional data sets from genomic and genetic experiments. Moreover, the student will learn how to practically approach such problems by using the statistical programming language R. In general, the course teaches statistical thinking in the context of biomedical problems, i.e., the adaptation of machine learning methods in a problem specific manner.
The next lecture in Computational Diagnostics will be offered in term 4 2018/2019.
