Li Lab team attended UFGI Genetics Symposium
Some team members attended the Florida Genetics Symposium.
We were looking forward to the keynote on genome editing using CRISPR–Cas9 by one of the pioneers Dr. Emmanuelle Charpentier, Unfortunately, her flight was canceled due to the Lufthansa pilot strike. Fortunately, we got other great speakers on genome editing too.
Our teams presented two posters: NSF CBL Center Poster and DeepFolding for end-to-end predicting the secondary structure of human proteins. DeepFolding achieved the state-of-the-art result with significant lead at the “cost” of zero feature engineering and data-driven end-to-end approach.
