AI Algorithm Detects Osteoarthritis Years Before Symptoms Develop
News   Sep 24, 2020

Researchers have created a machine-learning algorithm that can detect subtle signs of osteoarthritis, often missed by trained radiologists, on an MRI scan taken years before symptoms even begin.

New Method Maps Contact Points Between Replicated DNA Molecules
News   Sep 24, 2020

Breaks in our DNA, which can occur spontaneously or result from irradiation or chemical insults, can lead to severe problems since they foster mutations and can ultimately lead to cancer. One of the main DNA repair pathways involves copying the missing information on the damaged DNA from the replicated sister chromatid. For this to occur, the two DNA molecules of sister chromatids need to come close together at the exact same genomic position. The team around Daniel Gerlich developed a method that solves this problem.

SARS-CoV-2 Interactome Reveals Likely Molecular Mechanisms of Pathogenesis
News   Sep 24, 2020

University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers, led by Shahid Mukhtar, Ph.D., associate professor of biology in the UAB College of Arts and Sciences, have now built an interactome that includes the lung-epithelial cell host interactome integrated with a SARS-CoV-2 interactome.

Computer Program Creates Images Based on Your Brain Waves
News   Sep 23, 2020

Researchers at the University of Helsinki have developed a technique in which a computer models visual perception by monitoring human brain signals. In a way, it is as if the computer tries to imagine what a human is thinking about. As a result of this imagining, the computer is able to produce entirely new information, such as fictional images that were never before seen.

Algorithms Uncover Cancers’ Unseen Genetic Losses and Gains
News   Sep 18, 2020

Scientists have created new mathematical tools that allow scientists to search the vast collection of DNA snippets and uncover whether there are either missing pieces or duplicates. These algorithms, dubbed HATCHet and CHISEL, could help to improve diagnosis and treatment.

Genomics Union Tracks Strains of SARS-CoV-2
News   Sep 16, 2020

Initial findings reported by the Arizona COVID-19 Genomics Union (ACGU) suggest that following Arizona’s first reported case of COVID-19 in late January, the state experienced no cases that went undetected and was COVID-free until at least 11 distinct incursions occurred between mid-February and early April.
