Hacking the DNA code
Hacking the DNA code is like hacking computer code, through machine learning algorithms and use of neural networks. Søren Brunak is an expert on Bioinformatics and Bio-hacks. He will go over the challenges and achievements of sequencing DNA of entire populations and its implications in the healthcare sector. In particular, these sequences, together with other available data at the molecular level or electronic patient records at hospitals can reveal disease mechanisms in novel ways.
After a Q&A at a bar with dry ice, liquid nitrogen and smoke guns, the sound artist Budhaditya Chattopadhyay will present his work 'The City Trilogy', a series of sound-works consisting of three digital-acoustic compositions that explore the auditory perception and mediation of a city by sonic interaction with the urban landscape.
