An exciting opportunity at the intersection of single-cell biology and machine learning stems from the growing availability of large-scale perturbational data (drugs, knockouts, overexpression, etc.). I will present a framework based on causality and autoencoders that can integrate observational and perturbational data and discuss applications to learning gene regulatory networks as well as predicting the effect of new perturbations. We end by discussing how such a framework can be applied for drug repurposing in the current COVID -19 crisis.
