Building a Universal Phage Selection Platform by Applying Recent NLP Breakthroughs to Genomic Data of Phages & Bacteria
Time: 3:50 pm
day: Day Two
- Why treat genomes like natural languages? How can we create genomic language models based on Transformers, models that revolutionized the natural language processing (NLP) field?
- How can we use genomic language models to select the best therapeutic phages against any pathogen of interest?
- What is the future of transformer-powered genomics and phage therapeutics?
