DeepSTARR paper out now!

Congratulations to Bernardo, Fanny, Michi and Alex on their new paper now published in Nature Genetics! DeepSTARR is a deep-learning model that is able to quantitatively predict the activities of enhancers directly from DNA sequence. Their model learned cis-regulatory rules that further allowed them to design synthetic de novo enhancers with desired activities.
