The ICML Workshop on Computational Biology (WCB) highlights how ML approaches can be tailored to making both translational and basic scientific discoveries with biological data, such as genetic sequences, cellular features or protein structures and imaging datasets, among others. It aims to bring together interdisciplinary ML researchers working in areas such as computational genomics; neuroscience; metabolomics; proteomics; bioinformatics; cheminformatics; pathology; radiology; evolutionary biology; population genomics; phenomics; ecology, cancer biology; causality; representation learning and disentanglement to present recent advances and open questions to the machine learning community.
