Data Science Research Group for Health and Life Sciences

Many biological databases have become used in the field of life sciences. These databases are heterogeneous and distributed. In addition, especially in the field of healthcare, there is a large amount of unstructured and mostly textual data. The research topics of the Data Science for Healthcare and Life Sciences working group are:


  • Creating and/or analyzing structural databases from non-structured data with text mining methods
  • Integration of data from different sources with connected data and semantic network technologies
  • Analyzing the resulting big data with machine and/or deep learning methods


With these studies, it is aimed to reveal new or hybrid approaches based on prediction for the solution of many important problems in the field of bioinformatics and biomedicine.
