By applying artificial intelligence to genomes of Asian individuals has enabled scientists to identify an unknown human ancestor ? a hominid who cross bred with its ancestors tens of thousands of years ago.
Schizophrenia could be caused by a genetic mutation that causes a structural abnormality in the brain during adolescence. Therefore testing for the gene SLC39A8, and brain scans for schizophrenia could predict whether or not someone will develop it -- researchers at the University of Warwick have found.
Popular music streaming provider and app-maker Pandora has decided that linking up with third-party AI ecosystems isn't ideal and launched its own native helper called Voice Mode. The assistant will begin by rolling out in a limited
NESS ZIONA, Israel & SAN DIEGO & AICHI, Japan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 13, 2019--NRGene, a worldwide leader in genomic analysis, and Toyota announced today the decoding of a leading commercial strawberry genome, a key milestone in the development of high-quality, locally-produced fruits for the Japanese market. The combination of NRGene?s assembly of the strawberry genome and Toyota?s GRAS-Di DNA analysis technology will enhance the development of natural strawberry varieties better suited to the Japanese market.
The country now has another success to hail about Padma hilsa as the research on its genome sequence got international recognition, a year after the fish had secured the status of geographical indication (GI) product of Bangladesh.
The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) has published a paper reviewing the diverse approaches being taken around the world to integrate genomics into healthcare and presenting a roadmap for sharing strategies, standards, and data internationally.
There's an important difference between biological age and chronological age. People can be 'older' or 'younger' biologically, which affects life expectancy. Machine learning can help to assess this difference.
A computational technique used to block unwanted files and messages as a form of access or spam control has proven to be a novel method for streamlining the identification of genetic drivers of disease.
The National Science Foundation BIGDATA program awarded $1,200,000 to a research team led by the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering to study the big brain data for complex brain disorders and design new algorithms that address computational challenges in multi-site collaborative data mining.
While many viruses remain unknown and uncultivated, advances in genome sequencing and analyses have allowed researchers to identify more than 750,000 uncultivated virus genomes from metagenomic and metatranscriptomic data sets. As more and more researchers continue to assemble new genome sequences of uncultivated viruses, researchers at the US Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI) led a community effort to develop guidelines and best practices for defining virus data quality, reported in Nature Biotechnology.
