Machine Learning Reveals Gene Changes in the Developing Brain
News   Sep 25, 2018

Unlike most cells in the rest of our body, the DNA (the genome) in each of our brain cells varies from cell to cell, caused by somatic changes. But much remains unknown, including when these changes arise, their size and locations, and whether they are random or regulated. Now, researchers have developed new techniques allowing the detection of CNVs smaller than one million base pairs.
