Online tutor for Machine Learning and Algorithms for Genomics course for almost blind bioinformatics graduate student needed Hallo I am a severely visually impaired student. My eyesight is not good enough to see the projector in class but all the class material is freely available online. To access the course material for this class, please follow the steps below: 1) Go to the course website, which is 2) Switch language to English by clicking on the fourth pull-down menu from the left (= most right pull down menu), which is shown with white font on dark blue background. It may be set to German since it is a German website. Then it would say at this pull down menu “Deutsch (de)’. Just click onto the white arrow to the right and select English (en). 3) The course name should read: “Machine Learning and Algorithms for Genomics” 4) Go to the bottom of the page it says Guest access 5) In the box, above which it says Guest access key, type the access key for this course, which is MLGenomics16 6) Press on the Submit button at the bottom of the page and you can see all the course materials. 7) If you are having trouble accessing the course material but would like to take a look at it in order to decide whether you’d like to teach it to me please contact me so that we can access the course website remotely together. In case you feel it is too complicated to access the course material below is the syllabus of what will be covered in this course: 1) Week 1: Introduction • Classification + background (probability, biology) 2) Week 2: Probabilistic, generative models • Weight matrices and other sequence motif models • Chomsky hierarchy and stochastic grammars: Markov chain models • Hidden Markov Models: parsing + applications (gene finding, protein domains: annotation of genomes & proteomes) 3) Week 3: Generative models (cont.) • HMMs: training + applications • Motif finding: overview & probabilistic approaches (EM & Gibbs sampling) • Enumerative algorithms 4) Week 4: Deep sequencing data • Data structures and read alignments • Peak calling, transcript annotation & gene expression 21 Syllabus 5) Week 5: From generative models to probabilistic networks • RNA structure prediction & RNA genes • Gene expression networks, hierarchical Bayes 6) Week 6: Discriminative approaches I • Support Vector Machines: theoretical foundations • SVMs: applications and sequence kernels • Random Forests 7) Week 7: Discriminative approaches II • Dimensionality reduction & unsupervised learning • Deep learning My math, statistics and programming knowledge is very limited since I am a molecular biologist by training. I just recently had to switch to bioinformatics because my vision had worsened to a point that I could no longer perform wet-lab work efficiently under time pressure. That is why I am looking for a very patient tutor, who is willing to take the time to teach me how to apply all the concepts taught in this course and who could potentially assist me in writing a proposal about how to apply machine learning techniques to make new discoveries I thank you very much in advance for considering taking your time to assist me in learning the skills and techniques needed for earning a PhD in bioinformatics despite me being almost blind. I am very much looking forward to discuss more details with you soon. Best regards Thomas

The priority here is a candidate with deep knowledge and experience in R software programming. There is raw data that has been obtained for surveys which need to be used to run specific tests on the R software. Ideally, the person would have experience in writing papers as well, as this would allow them to be able to describe the findings clearly. Further discussions will be taken in the interview process to discuss what exactly is required and what tests need to be run with the available data. So if you know R software programming and have written papers before, this should be the job for you! Hope to hear from you soon.

I am looking for someone to help me create a good predictive model in predicting American Football total score outcomes, and that would calculate the probability of the match to go over or under, with the given total score bet line from the Casino. Here is the breakdown of what I am trying to do. 1. I would list all the matches for the week and I would enter the total score bet line (over/under). 2. Enter the previous games data of each of the teams. 3. Once I run the model, it would list the best matches with the highest probability of either going over the total score line or under the total score line. Scenario: Lets say TeamA and TeamB is playing next week and the casino gave total score line for the over and under is 40 points. With this tool, it should tell me that there is a 70% chance for this game to go over 40 points and 30% to go under 40. So in this case I will bet for the over, since its the highest probability of winning. Here is a good article that provides important variables that affect the game outcome.

US Stock Market: I have developed and tested a stock picking algorithms that identifies daily stock picks for investment (at any price point, industry, sector, etc.). Over the last 7 years, I have back-tested it 3 times on paper and I have actually made trades along the way to put money behind it in the real world. Each time and along the way, I continue to see a 95% success rate with my overall investment strategy. When I say success rate, I mean, I buy at the entry-point my algorithm dictates AND I sell at a predetermined percentage increase in the stock price for a gain at a predetermined price. The issue I have is that I have not been able to get a good methodology for estimating how long it will take for a particular stock’s price to increase to a certain point. No I don’t think it can be exact, but I should have an idea of what I think it would be close to; because it affects cash-flow. So the 5% non-success rate that I eluded to above is not really a “fail”; it just would be a situation of holding stocks longer than desired. So if you think about it from a cash-flow perspective, the number of shares, purchase price, and share price all play a part in the cash-flow; money tied up in a stock is money that can’t be invested in the new stocks that my algorithm produces. (For example, if I have 10k of cash to grow using my investment strategy, and 6k is tied up for 30 days before I can sell and get the gains; that could be 250 missed opportunities to invest that 6k in stocks that would have been bought and sold during that time frame.) I need an approach to rank the stocks that I would invest in on a daily basis, and it would be based on the belief that lower ranking ones would take longer to sell. This is what I’m looking for. Someone that wants to team-up with me and bring some value to this process. I can provide samples from my back-testing so you can see my buy and sell points. I also can provide historical stock prices for analysis, which would be the basis for some kind of statistical / analytical approach you would bring. There is no way to pay for this, because this would be too valuable. My stock picking is solid and proven, and your ranking system would make my stock picking much more valuable; because I can buy and sell at a more frequent rate and compound my investment money. I wouldn’t expect you to tell me your methodology; and I would not tell you mine. But you would have my daily pics and your ranking, which means you can do your own investing as well; we would share info to be successful. For the person that is willing to put in the time and can successfully developing a system that can be back-tested; it will be guaranteed success. This is really for the visionary, the thinker; the one that really sees themselves investing in the market. I run 7k stock tickers through my algorithm daily, so every day there is a list between 1 – 50 stocks that can be purchased. I don’t know if I will find one that is interested, but I thought I would give it a shot. If you are serious, open a message board. If you are looking for short-term money, get paid for your time, or to have any guarantees; this is not for you.

We need an algorithm that can handle the following use case. Let's suppose I have a set {​}​ and I compute the percentile rank. I want an algorithm that allows me to replace one or more values in the set (i.e. remove set member n5 and replace it with n9. Rather than re-compute the percentile rank across the whole set, I do the following: 1. compare the value the value replaced with the new value 2. based on some difference between the values adjust the percentile rank This can be defined in a statistical formula
