Poster at the Abcam Symposium 2016

abcam_symposiumOn 3rd October 2016 I’ll present a poster on “Deep siamese neural networks for prediction of long-range interactions in chromatin”  Abcam Symposium 2016, at MaRS Auditorium in Toronto.


New book chapter on Springer LNBI book post-CIBB 2015

Our chapter entitled “Validation Pipeline for Computational Prediction of Genomics Annotations”, written by me and Marco Masseroli, has been published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) book of the Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics (CIBB) 2015 conference selected papers.

At GLBIO 2016

header-glbio2016From 16th to 19th May 2016, I will be with my lab-mates at the Great Lakes Bioinformatics Conference (GLBIO) 2016 at University of Toronto. I will have an oral presentation about my work, entitled “Distal chromatin loop prediction with deep siamese neural networks“.


Program committee of CIBB 2016


I’m a member of the program comittee of CIBB 2016, the 13th International meeting on Computational Intelligence for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics. You’re all invited to submit your papers before 15th May 2016.


New journal paper published on BMC Bioinformatics

A paper that I wrote with Pietro Pinoli and Marco Masseroli from Politecnico di Milano just got published by the pre-eminent scientific journal BMC Bioinformatics. It is entitled “Computational algorithms to predict Gene Ontology annotations” and it’s been selected among the papers presented at the CIBB 2013 conference.

It is contained in the Volume 6 Supplement 6 of BMC Bioinformatics, entitled Selected articles from the 10th International Meeting on Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics. Take a look to it!


My poster at NIPS 2014

This year I will be again at NIPS 2014 international conference, and I will defend a poster entitled “Deep Autoencoder Neural Networks for Prediction of Biomolecular Annotations” at two workshops. One is MCLB 2014 – Workshop on Machine Learing in Computational Biology, and the other one is MLCDA 2014 – Workshop on Machine Learning for Clinical Data Analysis, Healthcare and Genomics.

NIPS 2014 will be held in Montreal (Quebec, Canada) from 8th to 13th of December 2014.

See you in Montreal!


Our paper accepted at ACM BCB 2014

I just got notified that our paper entitled “Deep Autoencoder Neural Networks for Gene Ontology Annotation Predictions” has been accepted for ACM BCB 2014, the 5th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Health Informatics.

This article was written by me, Peter J. Sadowski and Pierre Baldi from University of California Irvine, and reports my project developed during my six month stay in the Orange County.

ACM BCB 2014 conference will be held in Newport Beach (Southern California, USA) in late September 2014. See you there!
