Time: 4:00 - 5:00 pm
Venue: RRS628, Sir Run Run Shaw Building, Ho Sin Hang Campus
In this state-of-the-art presentation, important advances that have been made during the past decade for genome-wide human promoter recognition are described. Interest in promoter recognition algorithms is worldwide and touches on a number of practical systems on a genome-wide scale, which are important in analysis of gene regulation and in genome annotation without support of expressed sequence stages, cDNA or mRNA sequences. The main focus of this presentation is on the feature extraction and model selection for accurate human promoter recognition, with descriptions of what they are, what has been accomplished, and what remains to be done.
Jia Zeng received the B.Eng. degree in electrical engineering from Wuhan University of Technology, P. R. China, in 2002, and the Ph.D. degree from the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong, P. R. China, in 2006. He was a research fellow in the Department of Electronic Engineering at City University of Hong Kong from 2007 to 2008, and is currently a visiting research scholar with the Department of Computer Science, Hong Kong Baptist University. He was awarded First Place and Second Place in the 2005 and 2006 IEEE Region 10 Postgraduate Student Paper Competition, respectively. He is a member of the IEEE. His research interests include data mining, pattern recognition and bioinformatics.
