Deep Biology Program



About Deep Biology Program

Cere Labs is happy to start the Deep Biology program under the umbrella of CoE with Patkar-Varde College, Goregaon. This unique program brings together multiple departments in Patkar-Varde College, Goregaon to collaborate with CereLabs. The objective is to use Deep Learning and Machine Learning for Drug Discovery and Personalised Oncology.

The Deep Biology program took place in four phases:

Phase I - April ‘17 to May ‘17 - Decide Areas  

In the first phase the following two areas were decided:
Drug Discovery and Personalised Oncology
Drug design is an expensive process. A new drug takes 10 to 15 years and costs more than $250 billion to introduce it to market. Applying Machine Learning to drug discovery will reduce both the time and cost of discovering a new drug.

Personalized oncology 
Personalized oncology is the method of offering customized medicine for a cancer patient based on the person’s genetic makeup. Machine Learning techniques accelerates the process of finding accurate treatment.

Phase II - May ‘17 to June ‘17 - Training & Assignments
Students from Bioinformatics and Computer Science went through a seven days workshop on Bioinformatics and Machine Learning. This workshop helped them to start their research in drug discovery and personalized oncology.

Phase III - June ‘17 to September ‘17 - Literature survey and decide project topic

Following two projects were finalized

Project 1:Design chemical entity suitable for inhibition for HIV-1 Protease by combination machine learning techniques & structure based drug designing.

Description: Understanding the pathway of HIV virus and identifying important drug target (i.e. HIV-1 Protease) & validating active site in protein. Approved drug parameters are retrieved from DrugBank or PubChem. Creating analogs or similar structure and checking its activity using insilico tools. Combining data of approved and similar structure suitable for applying supervised machine learning technique and generate model/equation. Retrieving the parent molecule from collected data and performing lead optimization derive a new molecule. New molecule can be tested through the equation generated by machine learning to check activity/inactivity of molecule on HIV-1 Protease.

Expected Outcome: Determine parameters for best suited for chemical entity on selected protein target & model the structure of chemical entity for further analysis.

Project 2: Identifying Drug Candidate for multidrug resistance tuberculosis using drug repositioning method & machine learning.

Description: Machine learning is used to find patterns from gene expressions retrieved from GEO database which helps in identifying differential gene expression in healthy and diseased sample. Drugs are linked with gene expression to find enrichment score for each drug. Score above 30% indicates optimal drug suitable for further optimization and testing.

Expected Outcome: Identifying drug candidate from previously drugs, optimize the drug to reduce timeline of treatment. 

Phase IV -  September ‘17 onwards - Actual Working on project
 
Students have started on the projects. The task is of collecting data and training it using Machine Learning algorithms.

  1. The development of artificial intelligence (AI) has propelled more programming architects, information scientists, and different experts to investigate the plausibility of a vocation in machine learning. Notwithstanding, a few newcomers will in general spotlight a lot on hypothesis and insufficient on commonsense application. machine learning projects for final year In case you will succeed, you have to begin building machine learning projects in the near future.

    Projects assist you with improving your applied ML skills rapidly while allowing you to investigate an intriguing point. Furthermore, you can include projects into your portfolio, making it simpler to get a vocation, discover cool profession openings, and Final Year Project Centers in Chennai even arrange a more significant compensation.


    Data analytics is the study of dissecting crude data so as to make decisions about that data. Data analytics advances and procedures are generally utilized in business ventures to empower associations to settle on progressively Python Training in Chennai educated business choices. In the present worldwide commercial center, it isn't sufficient to assemble data and do the math; you should realize how to apply that data to genuine situations such that will affect conduct. In the program you will initially gain proficiency with the specialized skills, including R and Python dialects most usually utilized in data analytics programming and usage; Python Training in Chennai at that point center around the commonsense application, in view of genuine business issues in a scope of industry segments, for example, wellbeing, promoting and account.

GPU - The brain of Artificial Intelligence

Machine Learning algorithms require tens and thousands of CPU based servers to train a model, which turns out to be an expensive activity. Machine Learning researchers and engineers are often faced with the problem of running their algorithms fast. Although initially invented for processing graphics in computer games, GPUs today are used in machine learning to perform feature detection from vast amount of unlabeled data. Compared to CPUs, GPUs take far less time to train models that perform classification and prediction. Characteristics of GPUs that make them ideal for machine learning Handle large datasets Needs far less data centre infrastructure Can be specialized for specific machine learning needs Perform vector computations faster than any known processor Designed to perform data parallel computation NVIDIA CUDA GPUs today are used to build deep learning image processing tools for  Adobe Creative Cloud. According to NVIDIA blog future Adobe applicati

Anomaly Detection based on Prediction - A Step Closer to General Artificial Intelligence

Anomaly detection refers to the problem of finding patterns that do not conform to expected behavior [1]. In the last article "Understanding Neocortex to Create Intelligence" , we explored how applications based on the workings of neocortex create intelligence. Pattern recognition along with prediction makes human brains the ultimate intelligent machines. Prediction help humans to detect anomalies in the environment. Before every action is taken, neocortex predicts the outcome. If there is a deviation from the expected outcome, neocortex detects anomalies, and will take necessary steps to handle them. A system which claims to be intelligent, should have anomaly detection in place. Recent findings using research on neocortex have made it possible to create applications that does anomaly detection. Numenta’s NuPIC using Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) framework is able to do inference and prediction, and hence anomaly detection. HTM accurately predicts anomalies in real

Understanding Generative Adverserial Networks - Part 1

This is a two part series on understanding Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). This part deals with the conceptual understanding of GANs. In the second part we will try to understand the mathematics behind GANs. Generative networks have been in use for quite a while now. And so have discriminative networks. But only in 2014 did someone get the brilliant idea of using them together. These are the generative adversarial networks. This kind of deep learning model was invented by Ian Goodfellow . When we work with data already labelled, it’s called supervised learning. It’s much easier compared to unsupervised learning, which has no predefined labels, making the task more vague.  "Generative Adversarial Networks is the most interesting idea in the last ten years in Machine Learning." - Yann LeCun In this post, we’ll discuss what GANs are and how they work, at a higher , more abstract level. Since 2014, many variations of the traditional GAN have co
