I use computers to learn how genomes work.
🔭I’m currently working on interpretable ML around environmental DNA (eDNA) from Western Australia's oceans. Hopefully soon I will have models which tell me which WA ocean areas are healthy, which areas show more diversity than expected, and which ones need help! 👯I'm always happy to chat anything interpretable ML, especially applied to sequencing data (genomes/reads)! 📫How to reach me: twitter.com/philippbayer is probably fastest. if not, my uni email which is philippDOTbayerATuwaDOTeduDOTau 😄Pronouns: he/him ⚡Fun fact: most crops we rely on (bread wheat, canola, coffee, cotton, strawberry, etc.) are allopolyploids, that means that their cells contain a bunch of genomes from two or more ancestral species (canola: 2 genomes, bread wheat: 3 genomes). We humans have only one genome, boring.
