Machine Learning for Functional Genomics
Eventbrite.co.uk
2:15pm - 4pm


Machine Learning for Functional Genomics
Dr Nicholas Priest and Professor Sam Sheppard provide snapshots of academic research on machine learning and functional genomics being done at the University of Bath and elsewhere

 
IMI Thematic Semester talk
When: Wednesday 2 May 2018, 2.15 - 4pm
Venue: University of Bath, Building 8 West, Room 2.1
Audience: FREE event at the University of Bath, open to all with a ticket 

The part of the geneticist’s toolkit reserved for Machine Learning is not well-worn. The obvious next step is to train computers to identify and validate features of whole genome sequences which encode functionally important traits, such as regulatory networks. However, it is not yet clear how it will be achieved.
Co-sponsored by the Milner Centre for Evolution and the Institute for Mathematical Innovation, this event will provide snapshots of academic research on machine learning and functional genomics being done both here at the University of Bath and abroad.
The goal of the event is to identify the optimal data sets, methodologies and computing resources needed to unleash the power of computer learning for functional genomics.
Please contact the organisers if you want to contribute a short talk or join us for post-meeting discussion at the pub.

Dr Nicholas Priest


Our research focuses on how infection constrains the evolutionary process. For the most part, we use fruit flies as host for microbial pathogens to test how flies fight infection and how this alters life history evolution and the evolution of sex and meiotic recombination. The work imbeds mathematical modelling, genomics and machine learning to understand basic processes underlying organic evolution.

Professor Sam Sheppard


Our research centres on the use of genetics/genomics and phenotypic studies to address complex questions in the ecology, epidemiology and evolution of microbes. Our most recent interest focuses upon comparative genome analysis to describe the core and flexible genome of pathogenic bacteria (Campylobacter,Staphylococcus, Helicobacter and Escherichia coli) and how this is related to population genetic structuring, the maintenance of species, and the evolution of host/niche adaptation and virulence.

This event is free to attend, but please register by Wednesday 25th April 2018.  For further information please email n.fenn@bath.ac.uk or visit the IMI webpage. 

This event is part of the IMI Thematic Semester Machine Learning: Algorithms and Ethics and is arranged by both IMI and the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bath.

Introduction

-
Hello there! - We'd like to welcome you to Free weekly meetings hosted by Michael, Bernard which take place at the:

John Williams Room (2nd Floor), United Reformed Church Halls, Grove St, Bath, BA2 6PJ,

on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm until 9.00pm

With Sahaja Yoga Meditation we normally sit on chairs to achieve yoga, effortlessly & spontaneously. No Mats or special clothing required.

All across the globe, many are seeking new sources of energy. Meanwhile, the most transformative energy of all is hiding in plain sight, within us. It's natural, sustainable, and infinitely renewable. It's called inner kundalini energy. And everyone already has it — everyone!. It is often likened to an inner feminine or motherly energy which automatically knows about us and what is needed to help us restore balance and harmony within our subtle being. It works spontaneously, effortlessly, organically and cannot be paid for.

Sahaja Yoga Meditation is a simple time-honoured technique that lets you tap into that energy and harness its power to become better balanced and better connected to yourself — emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.

If you're having trouble juggling the challenges in your life, Sahaja Yoga Meditation might well help you manage stress, master your emotions and find solutions to your problems. You may enjoy better health, better focus, and a deeper understanding of the universe and your place in it.

Meditation is not just for mystics and monks. Sahaja Yoga meditation is for everyone. Anyone can do it. It's that easy. But with the Sahaja Yoga experience, you'll quickly realise, it isn't your typical Meditations 'R Us type class. It's much more than just feeling peaceful and relaxed. Sahaja Yoga Meditation has many layers, varied and deep. Explore at your own pace, in your own way. Our volunteer experts are always available to help.

Ready to plug into your inner energy? A Sahaja Yoga Meditation class is a great way to start. A few minutes of your life may be all it takes to connect to your inner energy and light the path to lifelong transformation. Sahaja Yoga is more than a temporary solution or quick relief — it is a journey, rather than a destination. It's all about energy — guaranteed pure and carbon neutral. You can never have too much of it.

The best part? All classes are free. No strings, no catch.
Everyone is welcome. Bring a friend, bring your self — all are welcome.

We have a web site here in London too which you can visit for more info about weekly meetings: www.sahajayogalondon.co.uk

Pencil To Paint: Apr - Jun 2018
Eventbrite.co.uk
18th April - 13th June


“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 8 week Pencil To Paint course will be abstraction and we will look at how form, gesture and emotion all play their part in successful picture-making, regardless of genre.
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
Notān
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  18, 25 April; 02, 09, 23, 30 May; 06, 13 June (8 x 1.5 hour sessions)
