Deep learning meets genome biology

April 27, 2016

Genome biology, as a field, is generating torrents of data. You will soon be able to sequence your genome using a cell-phone size device for less than a trip to the corner store. And yet, the genome is only part of the story: there exists huge amounts of data that describe cells and tissues. We, as humans, can’t quite grasp all this data: we don’t yet know enough biology. Machine learning can help solve the problem.
