Exactly 20 years after the successful completion of the "Human Genome Project," an international group of researchers, the Human Genome Structural Variation Consortium (HGSVC), has now sequenced 32 human genomes at high resolution.
Machine learning platforms can be fed data to "teach" them to learn patterns and predict outcomes, and they are becoming more important all the time in biomedical research. But what are they? How do they work? And can we peer into the black box of their inner functions to make them more powerful for prediction and discovery?
