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. […]
