Artificial intelligence deciphers genetic instructions

19 February 2021

A German-American team of scientists have deciphered some of the more elusive instructions encoded in DNA with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). Their neural network trained on high-resolution maps of protein-DNA interactions uncovers subtle DNA sequence patterns throughout the genome, thus providing a deeper understanding of how these sequences are organised to regulate genes.
