Project Description

The huge amount of biological data potentially available for research is a great opportunity to apply existing machine learning algorithms as well as newly developed ones in medical research. To this end, machine learning and data mining methods need to be adapted to the particular needs of bioinformatics. Together with biological data also the publication of scientific results in writing has increased. We therefor apply text mining methods to make these results accessible and easier retrievable.
