Using machine learning algorithms to analyse complex genetic data in sub-phenotypes of psychiatric disorders. (360G-Wellcome-099822_Z_12_Z)

The main objective for my PhD will be to apply machine learning methods and algorithms to complex genetic data in an attempt to identify features that characterise different sub­ phenotypes in psychiatric disorders. This will not only look for the contribution of individual genes, but also at possible biological gene-gene interactions and functional pathways. The use of non-parametric machine learning techniques will allow us to go beyond classical statistical (parametric) methods and search for more complex underlying patterns in the data.
