About The Course

BioNcube, a DBT BioNEST Ag-biotech Incubator and the Statis-tics, Bioinformatics and Data Management (SBDM) Theme (http://data.icrisat.org/) at ICRISAT (https://www.icrisat.org/) in collaboration with Professor Osval A Montesinos-López from Uni-versity of Colima, Mexico (https://www.ucol.mx) is organizing a training workshop on Advanced R & Application of Machine 3rd International Workshop on Genomic Selection in Plant Breeding through Advanced R & Machine Learning The course will be mainly divided into four modules.

First module will given general introduction on Genomic Selec-tion in plant breeding, development of models and application. Various genomic selection models commonly used and basics of mixed model analysis and genomic selection using Bayesian ap-proaches will be discussed. This module will introduce analyzing genomic selection using R. Illustrative examples of various GS models will be discussed with participants.

Second module will focus on basics of R. This module will intro-duce R to participants and will include installation, introduction to RStudio, basic data management with R, package installation, basic programming and use of R Graphics. After covering basic graphics we will also cover advanced graphics by introducing ggplot2 package.

Third module will focus on general machine learning, concepts, algorithms, application in genomic selection, overfitting problem and metrics for the evaluation of prediction performance. Partici-pants will learn logistic regression and penalized logistic regres-sion—with theory and illustrative examples. Concept of multino-mial regression will also be discussed.

Fourth module will be focused on artificial neural networks and deep learning for continuous outcomes. Participants will learn defining different artificial neural networks topologies, activation functions, loss functions, early-stopping method of training, the backpropagation algorithm and examples in keras for binary, ordinal, and continues outcomes and some successful applica-tions of artificial neural networks and deep learnings.
