# Enformer

Enformer model. It was introduced in the paper Effective gene expression prediction from sequence by integrating long-range interactions. by Avsec et al. and first released in this repository.

This repo contains the official weights released by Deepmind, ported over to Pytorch.

## Model description

Enformer is a neural network architecture based on the Transformer that led to greatly increased accuracy in predicting gene expression from DNA sequence.

We refer to the paper published in Nature for details.

### How to use

Refer to the README of enformer-pytorch regarding usage.
