Advances in high throughput sequencing and “omics” technologies and the resulting exponential growth in the amount of macromolecular sequence, structure, gene expression measurements, have unleashed a transformation of biology from a data-poor science into an increasingly data-rich science. Despite these advances, biology today, much like physics was before Newton and Leibnitz, has remained a largely descriptive science. Machine learning  currently offers some of the most cost-effective tools for building predictive models from biological data, e.g., for annotating new genomic sequences, for predicting macromolecular function, for identifying functionally important sites in proteins, for identifying genetic markers of diseases, and for discovering the networks of genetic interactions that...
