Hi everyone.

I'm a computer science student, I have some basic information about bioinformatics, my professor told me to find a topic, or better to say a problem in Bioinformatics that i can find a solution for it using Deep Learning, like protein structure prediction using deep learning, But i need a easier topic appropriate for an undergraduate student. Can you offer me a topic?
One extra information that I highly interested to do research on Personalized Medicine in graduate school.
Thanks.

I wrote up a list of some applications of deep learning to biology that I know of: https://followthedata.wordpress.com/2015/12/21/list-of-deep-learning-implementations-in-biology/

Maybe that can offer some background and ideas.

In addition to a problem in Bioinformatics, you will need training and testing data. I recommend visiting the DREAM challenges web site (http://dreamchallenges.org/) for a wide range of human medicine-focused problems -- some of which may be suitable for Deep Learning. Kaggle (https://www.kaggle.com/competitions) and TopCoder (https://www.topcoder.com/challenges/) also have biology-focused machine learning challenges from time to time.

You sequence a new cancer sample and find that about 300 genes are mutated. Which of these genes are the real drivers, and which are affected just by passenger mutations?
