Kipoi - Seminar

The monthly virtual seminar series is designed as a platform for interested Kipoi users and developers and will host talks on the applications of deep learning on biological data. The seminar is held on every first Wednesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. CET. We are also happy to share the recordings of the seminar on YouTube.

How to take part

The Virtual Seminar Series takes place via Zoom. To take part in the seminar, you can register for the online Zoom conference here. Your personal join link will be valid for all upcoming lectures of the series.

How to apply as a speaker

The seminar is a great opportunity to present your recent work to a large international audience. If you want to apply as a speaker, please use the contact in the registration confirmation email.

Single-cell regulatory models of human cardiogenesis enable prioritization of non-coding mutations in congenital heart disease
Date: 5 May 2021 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. Central European Summer time

Speaker: Anshul Kundaje, Stanford University

Abstract:

I will present (unpublished research) integrative analysis of single cell chromatin accessibility and expression data from early stages of human fetal heart development. We train and interpret deep learning models of base-resolution chromatin accessibility profiles to dissect cis-regulatory syntax of combinatorial TF binding in regulatory elements controlling dynamic gene expression and cell state transitions across all the major cellular lineages in human cardiogenesis. We predict the regulatory impact of de-novo non-coding mutations in congenital heart disease to prioritize putative causal mutations, transcription factors, regulatory elements and their target genes in putative causal cell types.
