Wo sich Porträtfotos mit Genetik und KI treffen

13. Juni 2019 – Das ist einfach faszinierende Wissenschaft und Medizin. Die Forscher testen neuronale Netzewerke, die automatisch Porträtfotos mit genetischen und phänotypischen Patientendaten kombinieren, um mit Hilfe der künstlichen Intelligenz (KI) eine endgültige Diagnose erblich bedingter seltener Krankheiten zu erhalten. In einer im Journal of Genetics in Medicine veröffentlichten Studie mit 679 Patienten mit 105 seltenen Krankheiten hat ein interdisziplinäres Wissenschaftlerteam gezeigt,

  • Mayo researchers recommend all women with breast cancer diagnosis under age 66 be offered genetic testing February 21, 2020
    A study by researchers at Mayo Clinic published this week in the Journal of Clinical Oncology suggests that all women with a breast cancer diagnosis under the age of 66 be offered germline genetic testing to determine if they have a gene mutation known to increase the risk of developing other cancers and cancers among […]
  • Cross-talk between enzymes that read and correct recipes in the cookbook of life February 21, 2020
    DNA is the hereditary material in humans, a unique cookbook of who we are. This is where you'll find the answer as to why you have your specific eye and hair colour, or perhaps why you sunburn easily.
  • Study finds certain genetic tests not useful in predicting heart disease risk February 21, 2020
    A Polygenic Risk Score—a genetic assessment that doctors have hoped could predict coronary heart disease (CHD) in patients—has been found not to be a useful predictive biomarker for disease risk, according to a Vanderbilt study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
  • Major discovery in the genetics of Down syndrome February 21, 2020
    Researchers at CHU Sainte-Justine and Université de Montréal have discovered a new mechanism involved in the expression of Down syndrome, one of the main causes of intellectual disability and congenital heart defects in children. The study's findings were published today in Current Biology.
  • MicroRNA exhibit unexpected function in driving cancer February 20, 2020
    Researchers long thought that only one strand of a double-stranded microRNA can silence genes. Though recent evidence has challenged that dogma, it's unclear what the other strand does, and how the two may be involved in cancer. New research from Thomas Jefferson University has revealed that both strands of some microRNA coordinate to act on […]
  • Specific gut bacteria may be associated with pulmonary arterial hypertension February 24, 2020
    Researchers have found a specific bacterial profile in the gut of people with pulmonary arterial hypertension, a chronic and progressive disease that causes constriction of arteries in the lungs. The unique bacterial profile predicted pulmonary arterial hypertension with 83% accuracy.
  • Intensive behavioral therapy and liraglutide 3.0 mg show positive results for weight loss February 24, 2020
