I recently obtained a Msc in Bioinformatics and Biostatitsics from Universitat Oberta de Catalunya and Universitat de Barcelona. My capstone project was entitled «Machine learning methods for characterizing single-particle trajectories with anomalous diffusion» under the supervision of Ferran Reverter Comes.
Single-Particle Tracking (SPT) appears to be a potential approach to studying different dynamic processes in the life sciences with recent advances in light microscopy. The physics of life molecules has an inherent instability due to the heterogeneity of free energy states that different types of molecules can show, far from thermal equilibrium and ranging at different scales, from the nanoscale of a single molecule up to the cellular or even organism level. The classification of trajectories is a relevant topic, not only in the biological field at the molecular level but also at the level of animal and human behavior. Besides, this topic combines physical principles with some degree of uncertainty, which habilitates us for exploring the use of ML techniques.
