What Do Gene Sequencing, Radio Astronomy And Particle Physics Have In Common?

Modern scientific discovery is driven by one thing, without which breakthroughs like gene sequencing, the search for the Higgs boson and dark matter and huge telescope arrays wouldnt be possible High Performance Computing (HPC). With the computational might to blitz through millions of bytes of data, calculations and statistical possibilities, scientists were able to posit the existence of particles like the Higgs boson and campaign for expensive projects like the Large Hadron Collider because they could show what they were looking for Continue reading

'Chappie' Director Optimistic About AI

Artificial intelligence might be smarter than us but it’s not as scary. Peering into the vast unknown before us can be terrifying, and we look to technology and science to light the way. But when Elon Musk says AI is “summoning the demon,” Bill Gates says people should be concerned about AI, and Stephen Hawking feels the whole thing “could spell the end of the human race,” it’s hard not to fear the rise of the machines.

Sequencing genetic duplications could aid clinical interpretation

Copy number variations (deletions or duplications of large chunks of the genome) are a major cause of birth defects, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disorders. Still, geneticists can definitively say how a CNV, once discovered in someone’s DNA, leads to one of these conditions in just a fraction of cases. To aid in the interpretation of CNVs, researchers at Emory University School of Medicine have completed detailed maps of 184 duplications found in the genomes of individuals referred for genetic testing. Continue reading
