Pre-Conference Workshop

The following optional workshop will be hosted by the conference sponsor Springer Nature and will take place before the EMBL Conference Transcription and Chromatin:

Building AI research solutions to support gene regulation research

Date: Saturday, 25 August, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Venue: Courtyard room A + B, EMBL Advanced Training Centre



Navigating a constantly increasing amount of scientific protocols and methods is a daunting task that poses two major challenges. First, it is difficult to stay updated on the newest protocols. Second, it is difficult to quickly find reproducible experiments for a research project. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are now revolutionizing scientific research and Springer Nature is using these powerful tools to vastly improve how one searches for experimental procedures. Our new research solution, Springer Nature Experiments, is the only tool of its kind specializing in the life sciences and biotechnology. It uses technologies like knowledge graphs, smart article indexing, and customized knowledge models to accelerate the protocols search and evaluation process. This talk illustrates how Springer Nature Experiments can provide fast and precise insights with examples drawn from areas like gene regulation, transcription or chromatin remodeling.


Satyavati Kharde has a PhD in Structural Biochemistry and 7 years’ experience in scientific research. She joined Springer Nature in 2016 and works on improving the access of researchers to the most relevant articles by supporting the development of tools and search platforms in areas such as Biomedical and Life Sciences.

All conference participants will receive an email with a registration link. 

Participation in the workshop is first come - first served.
