  • Data science tool that reveals molecular causes of disease shows power in infant cancer analysis

    Thursday, Feb 28, 2019
    by Steven Schultz, Office of Engineering Communications

    Princeton University researchers are gaining new insights into the causes and characteristics of diseases by harnessing machine learning to analyze molecular patterns across hundreds of diseases simultaneously. Demonstrating a new tool now available to researchers worldwide, the team of computer scientists and biologists has already uncovered and experimentally confirmed previously unknown contributions of four genes to a rare form of cancer that primarily affects babies and young children.
