About the Lunch Talks
The Biomina Lunch Talks are an initiative of a number of young researchers in the biomina network and is sponsored by the Flemish Government. We aim to stimulate the interaction between researchers from different disciplines who encounter bioinformatics and computational biology, and consequently we focus on a broad and multidisciplinary public. With this informal medium we would like to provide a platform where knowledge and experience can be presented and exchanged, across partners from both academia and industry. In this manner we have had the pleasure to welcome speakers from various institutes such as the University of Antwerp, the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Janssen Pharmaceutica, the Antwerp University Hospital and Open Analytics. Last, but not least, these sessions can provide a great opportunity for young researchers to acquaint themselves with new ideas and methods in the field of bioinformatics and medical informatics.

Title: Rule-based machine learning and expert systems in mass spectrometry
Abstract: Automated interpretation of spectra of organic matter is one of the oldest computational challenges in mass spectrometry. Since the early 1960s many approaches have been proposed to solve this problem. Among them, several rule-based systems and expert systems. In this presentation, I will illustrate how the translation of recorded masses to molecular formulas and amino-acid sequences benefitted and benefits from expert knowledge and rules.
