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.
