Artificial Intelligence In Bioinformatics

Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence


Image Analysis



  • Python knowledge recommended


This free course is heavily based on the ideology of “learning by doing” and, as a result, will be very hands-on. Students will learn a lot more about the emerging field of the future, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, through a series of mini-projects relating to biology in a field known as bioinformatics that can be expanded on after the course. As a result of the projects being done throughout the course, students will also gain further research and publication ideas, such as science fairs and journals. These projects include:

  • Using breast cancer dimension data to classify breast cancer
  • Classifying bioassay data
  • Detecting pneumonia by analyzing lung images with convolutional neural networks
  • Detecting malaria by analyzing skin images

Who this course is for:

  • Biologists interested in computational applications
  • Beginner programmers interested in data science
  • High school students interested in science fairs
