It’s a community of people from a range of different backgrounds who all share a common interest: using the power of tech to advance science!
On June 23rd 2023, BioLizard hosted a Bits in Bio Belgium meeting, which drew over fifty attendees to listen in to a series of three talks – with a healthy dose of networking and pizza on the side.
Jasper Zuallaert of VIB kicked off the event with a talk on Phospholingo, and left us with the take-home message that it’s key to know your data intimately before applying machine learning tools to it.
Next, Alexander Koch, our Team Lead Bioinformatics & Senior Bioinformatics Scientist, took the stage to highlight the importance of effective data governance and architecture in making biological research truly data driven. Alexander also presented a case study about using AI to streamline drug development pipelines, including an example of how to make machine learning output interactive and easy to interpret for wet lab scientists.
