Setting a biological agenda for deep learning

I’ve always been fascinated with the concept of discovery in biology. Perhaps this is the reason why I work with microscopy images as my data of choice. The whole reason we have the word “cell” is because scientists placed corks and plants under microscopes in the 16th century and observed …

Journal Club Review: “Mitigating Data Scarcity in Protein Binding Prediction using Meta-Learning”

In our recent journal club, we discussed the pre-print, “Mitigating Data Scarcity in Protein Binding Prediction using Meta-Learning”. Here, Luo et al. apply the recent trend of meta-learning to predicting phosphorylation sites for a poorly characterized kinase family. Meta-learning algorithms aim to discover models that generalize to new predictions with …
