# Concise: Keras extension for regulatory genomics

[![Build Status](](


Concise (originally CONvolutional neural networks for CIS-regulatory Elements) allows you to:

1. Pre-process sequence-related data (`concise.preprocessing`)
- convert a list of sequences into one-hot-encoded numpy array or tokens.
2. Specify a Keras model with additional modules
- Concise provides custom `layers`, `initializers` and `regularizers`.
3. Tune the hyper-parameters (`concise.hyopt`)
- Concise provides convenience functions for working with the `hyperopt` package.
4. Interpret the model
- most of Concise layers contain plotting methods
5. Share and re-use models
- every component (layer, initializer, regularizer, loss) is fully compatible with Keras. Model saving and loading works out-of-the-box.

## Installation

Concise is available for Python versions greater than 3.4 and can be installed from [PyPI]( using `pip`:

pip install concise

To successfully use concise plotting functionality, please also install the libgeos library required by the `shapely` package:

- Ubuntu: `sudo apt-get install -y libgeos-dev`
- Red-hat/CentOS: `sudo yum install geos-devel`

<!-- Make sure your Keras is installed properly and configured with the backend of choice. -->
