Deep Learning for the Life Sciences: Applying Deep Learning to Genomics, Microscopy, Drug Discovery, and More

Deep learning has already achieved remarkable results in manyfields. Now it's making waves throughout the sciences broadly andthe life sciences in particular. This practical book teachesdevelopers and scientists how to use deep learning for genomics,chemistry, biophysics, microscopy, medical analysis, and otherfields.Ideal for practicing developers and scientists ready to applytheir skills to scientific applications such as biology, genetics,and drug discovery, this book introduces several deep networkprimitives. You'll follow a case study on the problem of designingnew therapeutics that ties together physics, chemistry, biology,and medicine—an example that represents one of science's greatestchallenges.Learn the basics of performing machine learning on moleculardataUnderstand why deep learning is a powerful tool for geneticsand genomicsApply deep learning to understand biophysical systemsGet a brief introduction to machine learning with DeepChemUse deep learning to analyze microscopic imagesAnalyze medical scans using deep learning techniquesLearn about variational autoencoders and generative adversarialnetworksInterpret what your model is doing and how it's working
