AI in Cancer Research: Applications of Computational Genomics

September 29, 2021

In bioinformatics, machine learning (ML) tools are used to solve problems in molecular biology and genetics. In healthy cells, genes — the carriers of hereditary information — are switched “on” or “off” to carry out specific tasks. Bioinformatics researchers can decode DNA using artificial intelligence (AI) to understand why some of these switches occur inappropriately, leading to disease.

Artificial intelligence is often employed in the field of cancer genomics, where bits of DNA sequencing data must be identified and further analyzed with statistical, evolutional, and probabilistic models. “Off-the-shelf” computing tools are useful for many cancer researchers, but Mohammed El-Kebir (IGOH), Cancer Center at Illinois (CCIL) scientist, is taking these AI applications a step further.
