Project Description

This project is based on inter-disciplinary research: on the one hand, it is a Computer Science project, where a good understanding of software programming is needed. On the other hand, it is a Biological study: the aim of the project is to establish similarities and differences between "species" of software, just like traditional biology has taught scientists to differentiate between families, species, and subspecies of living organisms. The PhD candidate would need to understand concepts of programming, data science and clustering, as well as the basis of biological evolution and classification. Python, Natural Language Processing and Data Mining will be techniques used throughout the study.
