CSE 601: Data Mining and Bioinformatics

Data Mining and Bioinformatics

This course focuses on the fundamental techniques in data mining, including data warehousing, frequent pattern mining, clustering, classification, anomaly detection and feature selection methods. Specifically, we will cover the following topics: Data warehousing--model design; Frequent pattern mining--association rules mining; Clustering--partition-based, hierarchical-based, density-based approaches, spectral clustering; Feature selection--dimensionality reduction; Classification--decision-tree, Bayesian, rule-based, SVM, ensemble methods; Anomaly detection--statistics-based, density-based, clustering-based; Evaluation and validation of data mining results; Correlation analysis--metrics and analysis; Graph and network mining; Visualization of patterns--mapping between high-dimensional data and low-dimensional data; and Multi-source information integration. To demonstrate how data mining techniques are applied to various domains, we focus on the software systems design of bioinformatics, discussing the applications of data warehousing and data mining in biological and biomedical related fields. The class discusses various software systems and provides insight that will help students gain a comprehensive understanding of the bioinformatics field. Projects will be designed based on these applications.
