Bioinformatics Data Modelling and Analysis


The Brain-Like Artificial Intelligence (BLAI) is pioneered by Prof.Nikola Kasabov and here it is applied to a specific application.

Figure. Schematic representation of the SNN system for bioinformatics data modelling and analysis.

This SNN system propose novel research which is current under development. This novel system for bioinformatics data analysis is being applied to:

  • Static and Dynamic Transcriptomics Data Modelling and Analysis
  • Metabolomics Data Modelling and Analysis
  • Nutrigenomics Data Modelling and Analysis
  • Feature Selection Methods for Gene Expression Data Analysis

This SNN system can also be used to understand the biochemical mechanims that govern synaptic plasticity in the human brain and regulate cognitive by mean of glutamatergic and GABAergic bidirectional activity.

The proposed methods and systems, when compared with traditional statistical and machine learning methods, showed superior results in the following aspects:

  1. Better data analysis and classification accuracy;
  2. Better visualisation of the created models, with a possible use of VR;
  3. Better understanding of the data and the processes that are measured through a gene interaction network;
  4. Enabling new information and knowledge discovery through meaningful interpretation of the models and the genetics process that regulate the data.
