Where Science Meets Society

Study Uses Computer Learning to Provide QC for Genetic Databases

DNA doesn’t exist in a vacuum: even though every cell contains the entire genome of its host organism, they know how to differentiate, to become part of an eye, or a bone, or a leaf. These differences are related to each cell’s transcriptome—the array of messenger RNA (mRNA) that describe which parts of the genome are expressed as they are translated into proteins.
