    We are looking for students to join us in the research on Training of Genomics Language Models. The growth in the use of language models on genomic sequence data has been exponential due to their ability to capture non-linear long-range interactions between sections of importance of this highly multi-dimensional data. In cancer research, they provide nucleotide and sequence-level insights into genomic events of importance, influencing classification, treatment and survival analyses.
