The new course starts next Monday, October 1st!

We welcome all you to the new course of the MSc in Bioinformatics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. As you know, the course starts next Monday, October 1st, at 9:30h in the C5/058 classroom of the Facultat de Biociències. Let me remind you that in the students master web page you will find the complete schedule of the course, as well as a map of the faculty with the exact location of your classroom. You can incorporate it in your personal Google calendar to be aware of the latest changes by clicking in this icon  + Google calendar of this  link.

You will have complete access to the student Web page using your NIU (Student Identification Number). 

In order to bring you to the classroom the first day, I invite you to meet Antonio Barbadilla and Raquel Egea at 09:10h at the main entrance of the Facultat de Biociències (central axis), right next to the concierge (main entrance). They will guide you to the classroom and will present several important aspects about the master before the class begins. If you have any problems/suggestions/questions, do not hesitate to contact me (the first days and also during the rest of the course). 

Regarding the classroom, it is a bioinformatics lab with one computer per student and it is devoted exclusively for students of this master during the first semester. You will have open access to it during the first semester, even if there are no programmed classes. In the following links you have the UAB normative of these spaces (in Spanish and English) and you should sign the last sheet for accepting the regulations and deliver it to us the first day.


We wish that this master fills completely your expectations and it becomes the decisive boost for your professional success.

Kind regards,

Raquel Egea

Title Summary
Mosaic-like gene deletion and duplication pattern shaping the immune system discovered A team of researchers has developed a computational tool for analyzing genetic changes related to the immune system. With this new development, the onset of many autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and celiac disease, infectious diseases, such as hepatitis C and flu, and various forms of cancer may be predicted.

Artificial intelligence applied to the genome identifies an unknown human ancestor By combining deep learning algorithms and statistical methods, investigators have identified, in the genome of Asian individuals, the footprint of a new hominid who cross bred with its ancestors tens of thousands of years ago.

Researchers use 'blacklist' computing concept as novel way to streamline genetic analysis Researchers have discovered a new use for a long-standing computational concept known as 'blacklisting.' Using blacklisting as a filter to single out genetic variations in patient genomes and exomes that do not cause illness, researchers have successfully streamlined the identification of genetic drivers of disease.

Computer hardware designed for 3D games could hold the key to replicating human brain Researchers have created the fastest and most energy efficient simulation of part of a rat brain using off-the-shelf computer hardware.

Monitoring the environment with artificial intelligence
Microorganisms perform key functions in ecosystems and their diversity reflects the health of their environment. Researchers use genomic tools to sequence the DNA of microorganisms in samples, and then exploit this considerable amount of data with artificial intelligence. They build predictive models capable of establishing a diagnosis of the healt [+]

New file type improves genomic data sharing while maintaining participant privacy Based on an analysis of data leakages and opportunities to prevent the potential misuse of genetic information, researchers have developed a new file format for functional genomics data that enables data sharing while protecting the personal information of research participants.

Novel machine learning based framework could lead to breakthroughs in material design Computers used to take up entire rooms. Today, a two-pound laptop can slide effortlessly into a backpack. But that wouldn't have been possible without the creation of new, smaller processors -- which are only possible with the innovation of new materials.

New algorithm efficiently finds antibiotic candidates
Researchers describe a new means of searching vast repositories of compounds produced by microbes. By analyzing the mass spectra of the compounds, they were able to identify known compounds within the repository and eliminate them from further analysis, focusing instead on the unknown variants that might potentially be better or more efficient anti [+]

Computational imaging: Looking to immune cell shapes to predict how well body will fight lung cancers Researchers have discovered how to quickly and accurately predict which lung cancer patients will benefit from chemotherapy by analyzing the arrangement -- not the number -- of cells the body sends out to fight the disease.

Why do some microbes live in your gut while others don't? Researchers have developed a new computational approach to identify the genes that may be important to help microbes live successfully in the human gut.

Computer simulations predict the spread of HIV In a new study, researchers show that computer simulations can accurately predict the transmission of HIV across populations, which could aid in preventing the disease.

Computing power used to track the spread of cancer
Researchers have developed a new computational method that increases the ability to track the spread of cancer cells from one part of the body to another. This migration of cells can lead to metastatic disease, which causes about 90 percent of cancer deaths from solid tumors -- masses of cells that grow in organs such as the breast, prostate or col [+]
