Fighting resistances with AI

Dear Sir or Madam,

Machine learning and artificial intelligence currently turn many areas of medicine inside out. Around the world, algorithms are researched that are meant to support physicians and help them get a better look inside the human body. Researchers in California have now developed an algorithm to predict resistance genes in bacteria. Read more in our news.

Have a relaxed week,

Scientists call for unified standards in 3D genome and epigenetic data

Studying the three-dimensional structure of DNA and its dynamics is revealing a lot of information about gene expression, expanding our knowledge of how cells, tissues and organs work in health and disease. Properly producing and managing this large amount of data is both challenging. Now top researchers call for unified standards and suggest guidelines in this research area.

Testing cells for cancer drug resistance

Biophysicists at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) have demonstrated that Raman microscopy can be used to detect the resistance of tumour cells to cancer drugs. Unlike conventional approaches, this method does not require any antibodies or markers. It detects the response of cells to administered drugs and therefore could determine the effect of drugs in preclinical studies.
