COST Action ML4Microbiome
COST Actions are research networks funded through The European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST)
Our group is involved in the COST Action CA18131 Statistical and machine learning techniques in human microbiome studies (ML4Microbiome), with PI Bertelsen as Vice Chair for the Action.
COST Action ML4Microbiome will create a network for discovery-oriented microbiome researchers and data-driven ML experts through meetings, workshops and training courses. The goal is to optimize and standardize the use of ML for microbiome research. Rajesh Shigdel has contributed to publications from this action.

COST creates spaces where scientists are in the driving seat (bottom-up) and ideas can grow through a flexible and open approach. By enabling researchers from academia, industry and the public and private sector to work together in open networks that transcend borders, COST helps to advance science, stimulates knowledge sharing and pools resources.
