Deep learning in genomics with Olga Troyanskaya

At ASHG 2019 (15-19 October 2019, Houston, TX, USA), we spoke to Olga Troyanskaya (Princeton University, NJ, USA) about her new deep learning framework for the study of sequences; Selene. Alongside deep learning in genomics, we also discussed the vital need for gold standard practices for associating gene variants with disease, before looking to the future and the study of combinations of gene variants.
