For example, at Queen Mary, we’ve recently been awarded funding by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) for a new industry partnership aimed at bridging a known skills gap for researchers who possess both deep computational skills and an understanding of key biological concepts. Through this, we’ll be developing specific modules that will train students in both areas, to produce “AI native” biological scientists..."
