Thanks to the meticulous nature of Human Genome Project architects, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) has a rich archive of hundreds of thousands of scanned physical documents from the project and more recent genomics initiatives.
The comprehensiveness of this resource makes it unique within NIH and the larger scientific community. However, the wealth of data is overwhelming for human eyes. So, for the last two years, machine learning experts have been exploring this dynamic dataset to reveal new knowledge and insights into the development of genomics.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the NHGRI History of Genomics Program, the Institute will host a virtual lecture – The history of genomics told through machine learning: A celebration of 10 years of the NHGRI history program – on what these experts have found so far.
