Supercomputers Help Researchers Design Cancer Models and Predict Treatment Outcomes

These are snapshots of a tumor model with tumor cells growing in a healthy tissue at two time points and under different nutrient conditions. Each proliferative cell gives rise to two identical daughter cells, they enter the quiescent state in which they await a signal to replicate. Cells under nutrient stress (hypoxic) eventually die. Programmed cell death (apoptosis) is shown in red. Credit: Rocha et. al. 2017

Changing Lanes: Algorithm Helps AI Drive More Like Humans

News

For self-driving cars, algorithms for changing lanes are beset by one of two problems. Either, they rely on detailed statistical models of the driving environment, which are too complex to analyze on the fly; or they’re so simple that they can lead to impractically conservative decisions, such as never changing lanes at all. Now a new algorithm hopes to split the difference, allowing aggressive lane changes than the simple models do but relies only on immediate information about other vehicles’ directions and velocities to make decisions.

Antitumor Immune Function in Liver Controlled by Gut Microbiome

News

Scientists have found a connection between bacteria in the gut and antitumor immune responses in the liver. The study showed that bacteria found in the gut of mice affect the liver’s antitumor immune function. The findings have implications for understanding the mechanisms that lead to liver cancer and for therapeutic approaches to treat them.
