DeepChem Bioinformatics Call
Date: April 25st, 2022
Attendees: Bharath, Paulina, Stanley
Bharath has been working on the huggingface/deepchem bridge.
Paulina reached out to the Kipoi developers and heard back about the status of the project.
Stanley has been chatting with David about protein transformers.
We had a discussion about the potential for genomic transformers and where we see potential biological applications. Read about Big Bird for reference. https://arxiv.org/abs/2007.14062
Paulina and Stanley said they would start gathering some resources on the deepbio issues and other tools that could be used.
