Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide. The recent progress in high-throughput experimentation and big data technologies have provided a novel opportunity to address this project in silicon. This project aims to mine genomic and clinic data from a large number of cancer patients. More information can be found at http://wang-lab.ust.hk/index.html.
This project requires strong programming skills and solid quantitative background. Students who are good at statistics, linear algebra or computer science are preferred.
The applicants will handle a large amount of data from hospital and develop machine-learning or deep-learning methods to predict optimal treatment for individual patients.
1. understand the basic concept of precision cancer medicine;
2. be able to develop algorithms or pipelines to study large-scale sequencing data.
