Dr Michal Draminski gave a talk at ZBO seminars entitled "Monte Carlo Feature Selection and Interdependencies Discovery (MCFS-ID). Theory and practical usage of the algorithm". The aim of the lecture was to present and teach an innovative approach (MCFS-ID) to select informative features from high dimensional complex Life Science data sets using R. R is powerful environment and language for data processing and it supports various machine learning, statistical, optimization and data mining functions. The package rmcfs is not only MCFS-ID implementation for R – it is a complex solution for feature selection, discovery of feature interdependencies (ID) as well as evaluation and later processing of the obtained result.

Dr Magdalena Mozolewska gave a talk at the "2nd International Conference on Computational Genomics and Proteomics" held in Playa Blanca, Panama from August 14 to August 18, 2017 entitled "Carbon nanotubes in UNRES force field". She presented the results of implementing the simplified Carbon Nanotube into the physics-based, coarse-grained UNited RESidue (UNRES) force field. Simulations of protein-CN systems were tested for the ability to keep constant energy and influence of CN on temperature stability of the thermostats. Then new potential was utilized to study interactions of various sizes of CNs with three model proteins: BSE, CT, and SBP. Her results show that the extended UNRES force field can predict binding of these proteins to CNs correctly, and observed influence of CN on the protein-structure stability is in a good agreement with the experimental observations.

dr Michal J. Dabrowski gave a talk at the IPI PAN seminar entitled “DNA methylation impact on the glioma patients overall survival”. The aim of our study is to establish a highly accurate prediction of patients’ survival using the classification-based feature selection and rule-based modeling. Moreover, we aim at obtaining specific interdependencies between genes and methylation sites. At the same time, we verify feasibility of the Monte Carlo Feature Selection and Interdependency Discovery (MSFS-ID) algorithm to efficiently process large scale data consisting of almost half million features.
