I had noticed a growing interest in the use of machine learning (ML) to answer tough biological questions at the Broad Institute. During graduate school, I had taught myself the practical aspects of ML through the
scikit-learn API; I found it to be a great introductory path into machine learning. In collaboration with Andres Colubri, David Dao and Jane Hung (Broad Institute), we put together a workshop for members of the Broad Community, with the materials freely available.
