New machine learning tool discovers mutational signature that links bladder cancer to smoking

Researchers from the University of California, San Diego have for the first time discovered a pattern of DNA mutations that links bladder cancer to smoking. The discovery was made possible by a powerful new machine learning tool the team developed to find patterns of mutations caused by carcinogens and other DNA-altering processes. The book, published …

AI-guided tools identify immune cell driver and protective genetic factor in esophageal cancer

Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) is a type of cancer affecting the mucus-secreting glands of the lower esophagus -; the tube connecting the throat to the stomach. It is the most common form of esophageal cancer and often preceded by Barrett’s metaplasia (BE), a deleterious change in the cells lining the esophagus. Although the cause of EAC …
