Deep Thoughts on Genome Editing

■ Medicine / Deep Thoughts on Genome Editing Novel application of AI significantly fine-tunes CRISPR-Cpf1 gene editing technology. Researchers at the Yonsei University College of Medicine and Seoul National University, as well as other institutions in Seoul, Republic of Korea, have developed a novel AI-based tool for optimizing the accuracy of a popular genome editing strategy, demonstrating the extensive potential for integrating state-of-the-art machine learning with bioinformatics to turbo-charge biologic and medical research. Building upon their prior research in developing a prototype computational algorithm for predicting the activity of guide sequences for the Cpf1 enzyme that mediates CRISPR genome editing technology, the team led by … Continue reading Deep Thoughts on Genome EditingRead More →
