Title: Machine Learning­based Design of Proteins and Small Molecules

Presenter: Jennifer Listgarten, PhD
Professor Dept of Electrical Engineeriing and Computer Sciences, University of California, Berkeley

With the advent of more and more high­throughput technologies to measure protein properties of interest such as binding, expression, fluorescence, the time for machine learning to act synergistically with protein design is here. I will describe our work on accelerating the design/optimization of proteins (and small molecules) with machine learning approaches— a sort of in silico approach to the method of Directed Evolution which won the 2018 Nobel prize in Chemistry.
