Tool of the trade: researcher applies artificial intelligence to uncover causes, risks for disease

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

Some diseases, such as certain breast and colon cancers, are linked to genetic mutations passed down in families. But for many other diseases there are no direct genetic links that explain why the disease develops. That’s why Manolis Kellis, Ph.D. and his team are using artificial intelligence to uncover the hidden cause of disease. Dr. […]

Harnessing the power of big data to uncover genetic risk for disease

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

There is no single gene that causes diabetes, bipolar disorder or Alzheimer’s disease, but there are genes linked to conditions that may occur before a patient eventually develops these disorders. What if researchers could identify individuals whose genetic makeup puts them at risk for developing disease so that physicians could intervene sooner and provide more […]
