Description:   The theme of the workshop is methodology and application of statistical machine learning methods in biosciences. The workshop will bring together a small group of researchers from three institutes to interact and explore areas of potential collaboration. The participants are by invitation only. The presentations will be informal and focus on open problems. There will be plenty of time for discussions. The workshop will foster collaboration among the three institutes and it is expected that some collaborative projects will be initiated at the end of the workshop.
