Machine Learning (ML) is an adaptive process of interpreting information from real-world data sets, by making use of computers that learn from experiences. Bioinformatics is emerging as an interdisciplinary science of interpreting biological data using such adaptive computational procedures. This article provides an overview on the ML tools and techniques, which are useful in bioinformatics and computational biology.
