## BIODS 217A: Analytics Accelerator Seminar (CME 217A)

CME 217A introduces students to potential computational mathematics research projects at Stanford and with outside organizations. This seminar series is an introduction to winter quarter
CME 217B, a multidisciplinary graduate level course designed to give students hands-on experience working in teams through real-world project-based research. Each week throughout the quarter, a project mentor will present their research. In November, students preference projects and apply for the winter quarter
CME 217B. Pre-requisites: none. Graduate students only.

## BIODS 220: Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare (BIOMEDIN 220, CS 271)

Healthcare is one of the most exciting application domains of artificial intelligence, with transformative potential in areas ranging from medical image analysis to electronic health records-based prediction and precision medicine. This course will involve a deep dive into recent advances in AI in healthcare, focusing in particular on deep learning approaches for healthcare problems. We will start from foundations of neural networks, and then study cutting-edge deep learning models in the context of a variety of healthcare data including image, text, multimodal and time-series data. In the latter part of the course, we will cover advanced topics on open challenges of integrating AI in a societal application such as healthcare, including interpretability, robustness, privacy and fairness. The course aims to provide students from diverse backgrounds with both conceptual understanding and practical grounding of cutting-edge research on AI in healthcare. Prerequisites: Proficiency in Python or ability to self-learn; familiarity with machine learning and basic calculus, linear algebra, statistics; familiarity with deep learning highly recommended (e.g. prior experience training a deep learning model)..

## BIODS 221: Machine Learning Approaches for Data Fusion in Biomedicine (BIOMEDIN 221)

Vast amounts of biomedical data are now routinely available for patients, raging from genomic data, to radiographic images and electronic health records. AI and machine learning are increasingly used to enable pattern discover to link such data for improvements in patient diagnosis, prognosis and tailoring treatment response. Yet, few studies focus on how to link different types of biomedical data in synergistic ways, and to develop data fusion approaches for improved biomedical decision support. This course will describe approaches for multi-omics, multi-modal and multi-scale data fusion of biomedical data in the context of biomedical decision support. Prerequisites: CS106A or equivalent,
Stats 60 or equivalent.

## BIODS 232: Consulting Workshop on Biomedical Data Science

The Data Studio is a collaboration between Spectrum (The Stanford Center for Clinical and Translational research and Education) and the Department of Biomedical Data Science (DBDS). The educational goal of this workshop is to provide data science consultation training for students. Data Studio is open to the Stanford community, and we expect it to have educational value for students and postdocs interested in biomedical data science. Most sessions are workshops that provide an extensive and in-depth consultation for a Medical School researcher based on research questions, data, statistical models, and other material prepared by the researcher with the aid of our facilitator. At the workshop, the researcher explains the project, goals, and needs. Experts in the area across campus will be invited and contribute to the brainstorming. After the workshop, the facilitator will follow up,helping with immediate action items and summary of the discussion. The last session of each month is devot

After the workshop, the facilitator will follow up,helping with immediate action items and summary of the discussion. The last session of each month is devoted to drop-in consulting. DBDS faculty are available to provide assistance with your research questions. Skills required of practicing biomedical consultants, including exposed to biomedical and health science applications, identification of data science related questions, selection or development of appropriate statistical and analytic approaches to answer research needs. Students are required to attend the regular workshops and participate one to two consulting projects as team members under the supervision of faculty members or senior staff. Depending on the nature of the consulting service, the students may need to conduct numerical simulation, plan sample size, design study, and analyze client data. the formal written report needs to be completed at the end of consulting projects. May be repeated for credit. Prerequisites: course work in applied statistics, data analysis, and consent of instructor.

## BIODS 239: Introduction to Analysis of RNA Sequence Data (BIOC 239)

Introduction to analysis of RNA-sequencing data including theory and napplications. Topics discussed will include computer scientific approaches to sequencing alignment such as dynamic programming, and statistical techniques that are that are used in analysis of next-generation sequencing data: Poisson models, the Expectation-Maximization algorithm, bootstrapping, multivariate linear models. Time permitting, we will cover single cell RNA sequencing, analysis and topics that arise in the analysis of multiple or large numbers of samples.
