DNA databases are too white. This man aims to fix that.

In the 15 years since the Human Genome Project first exposed our DNA blueprint, vast amounts of genetic data have been collected from millions of people in many different parts of the world. Carlos D. Bustamante’s job is to search that genetic data for clues to everything from ancient history and human migration patterns to the reasons people with different ancestries are so varied in their response to common diseases.

Alzheimer’s one day may be predicted during eye exam

It may be possible in the future to screen patients for Alzheimer’s disease using an eye exam. Using technology similar to what is found in many eye doctors’ offices, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have detected evidence suggesting Alzheimer’s in older patients who had no symptoms of the disease.

Dr. Jose Morey - Machine Learning in Radiology: Applications Beyond Image Interpretation

Much attention has been given to machine learning and its perceived impact in radiology, particularly in light of recent success with image classification in international competitions. However, machine learning is likely to impact radiology outside of image interpretation long before a fully functional “machine radiologist” is implemented in practice. Here, we describe an overview of machine learning, its application to radiology and other domains, and many cases of use that do not involve image interpretation. We hope that better understanding of these potential applications will help radiology practices prepare for the future and realize performance improvement and efficiency gains.

Study on mice offers clues in quest to reverse effects of aging

It’s not the Fountain of Youth just yet, but a new study led by researchers from Harvard and MIT might offer important clues in the quest to reverse the effects of aging.As people age, their blood vessels lose the capacity to deliver oxygen and nutrients to muscles, resulting in loss of endurance, said David Sinclair, a professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School and a senior author of the study.

Shielding the Human Genome: Mitigating the Threat of Space Radiation

For decades, NASA and others have studied the radiation problem and searched for solutions. Left unchecked, sustained exposure to space radiation will make long-duration manned missions beyond Earth’s ionosphere dangerous and, in some worst-case scenarios, lead to disease and death. It was this challenge that led NASA in 2016 to describe exposure to space radiation as the most dangerous aspect of travel to Mars.
