Thanks to the increasing availability of genomics and other biomedical data, many machine learning approaches have been proposed for a wide range of therapeutic discovery and development tasks. In this survey, we review the literature on machine learning applications for genomics through the lens of therapeutic development. We investigate the interplay among genomics, compounds, proteins, electronic health records (EHR), cellular images, and clinical texts. We identify twenty-two machine

We also pinpoint seven important challenges in this field with opportunities for expansion and impact. This survey overviews recent research at the intersection of machine learning, genomics, and therapeutic development.
