Building Better Cancer Models

Credit: UCLA/Graeber Lab Genomically instable cancer cells can have as many as two times more chromosomes than healthy cells, as well as other abnormalities (left, circles). When scientists group like chromosomes together (right), it can reveal patterns that help them better detect the genetic aberrations that drive cancer growth.

Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing Genes

News

Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.

Researchers Move Closer to Completely Optical Artificial Neural Network

News

Researchers have shown that it is possible to train artificial neural networks directly on an optical chip. The significant breakthrough demonstrates that an optical circuit can perform a critical function of an electronics-based artificial neural network and could lead to less expensive, faster and more energy efficient ways to perform complex tasks such as speech or image recognition.
