Web-based DragoNN tutorials use Jupyter notebooks to allow interactive model manipulation and visualization. The DragoNN tutorials demonstrate model design and interpretation principles using simulated data. Having access to the ground truth in the simulations enables us to dissect the specific parameters affecting prediction performance and model interpretation. Simulations can thus enable systematic evaluation of model design and interpretation to quickly find principles that could effectively apply to real genomic data. dragonn_workflow

Getting access to DragoNN software and GPU hardware

Each tutorial below specifies software and hardware requirements.

Tutorials with software requirements will necessitate either a released version of the DragoNN package or the bleeding-edge (non-released) version. See the code page for software installation and configuration instructions.

Tutorials with hardware requirements will necessitate either a CPU (Tutorial 1) or a GPU (Tutorials 2 - 5). If the tutorial requires a GPU and you do not have access to GPUs locally, you can run the tutorials in Google Colaboratory (see below) with a GPU accelerator.

Google Colaboratory Tutorials

The following notebooks can be opened and executed with Google Colaboratory

Tutorial 1: Exploring convolutional neural network (CNN) architectures for a homotypic motif density simulation.

Tutorial 2: CNN hyperparameter tuning via grid search.

Tutorial 3: Interpreting features induced by CNN's across multiple types of motif grammars.

Tutorial 4: Interpreting predictive sequence features in TF binding events within the GM12878 cell line.

Tutorial 5: Functional variant characterization for non-coding SNPs within the SPI1 motif.

Intro tutorials included with the dragonn source code

Software requirements: bleeding-edge DragoNN package.

Hardware requirements: CPU/laptop sufficient for tutorial 1. GPU hardware required for tutorials 2 - 5.
