Studying regulatory DNA with deep learning

After a Masters in Plant Biotechnology, a career in industry and another Masters in Bioinformatics, I started in November 2020 on a quest to unravel regulatory DNA expression mechanisms in plants. I try to convince computers to figure out these intricate mechanisms so that we can learn from what they learned. Ultimately, this could lead to food crops that are better adapted to a changing environment.
