[Dec 2nd 2020] LabMeeting: Learning Emotions from Constraints

Lisa Graziani (University of Florence) Dec 2, 2020 – 11:00 – 11:45 AM Conference Meeting Description Emotions have an important role in daily life, indeed influence decision-making, human interaction, perception, attention, self-regulation. In the early 1970s, the psychologist Paul Ekman defined six universal emotions, namely anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness and surprise. This categorization has […]

[Nov 25th 2020] LabMeeting:A comparative analysis of neural network models for the prediction of protein synthesis levels.

Veronica Lachi (University of Siena) Nov 25, 2020 – 11:00 – 12:30 AM Conference Meeting Description Ribosome profiling — which nowadays is the best tool to investigate the gene expression control — allows to determine the speed of translation of an RNA sequence, by analysing ribosome footprints. Among samples from the same RNA sequence, a […]

[Nov 25th 2020] LabMeeting: LSTM for the prediction of the translation speed based on Ribosome Profiling

Caterina Graziani (University of Siena) Nov 25, 2020 – 11:00 – 12:30 AM Conference Meeting Description Ribosome profiling (Ribo-seq profiling) is a powerful tool for studying the translational control of gene expression. The translational profile of an RNA sequence is estimated by counting the occurrences of its subsequences in ribosome footprints. The translational speed of […]

[Nov 18th 2020] LabMeeting: Neural networks for processing heterogeneous graphs

Federica Baccini (University of Florence) Nov 18, 2020 – 11:00 – 11:45 AM Conference Meeting Description In this talk, I will introduce the problem of processing heterogeneous graphs (HETGs), i.e. graphs where nodes represent different entities, and edges denote multiple relation types. Despite heterogeneous graphs are able to model a broad variety of real world […]
