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?
