Machine Learning Project under guidance of Professor Mehul Rawal, SEAS, AU
Worked with the Sasaki dataset having data about the carcinogenicity of chemical compounds on DNA of different organs of rats. Interacted with toxicologists to understand it in depth. For this, I used linear and non-linear regression models to understand, assess and explain the relationships between the affected DNA's tail length and the chemical compounds in question. These relationships were then used to predict the aforementioned missing data. Selected amongst 6 contestants chosen globally in Professor Andrew Ng’s #LearnML contest.
