The rigamarole of RNA, ribosomes, and machine learning

The rigamarole of RNA, ribosomes, and machine learning

Lisa Hildebrand and Adrian Gallo

Basic biology and computer science is probably not an intuitive pairing to think of, when we think of pairs of scientific disciplines. Not as intuitive as say biology and chemistry (often referred to as biochem). However, for Joseph Valencia, a third year PhD student at OSU, the bridge between these two disciplines is a view of life at the molecular scale as a computational process in which cells store, transmit, and interpret the information necessary for survival. Join us on this week’s episode as we explore how machine learning can be used to try and reveal how ribosomes make critical decisions in our bodies.
