Artificial Intelligence Unlocks ‘Treasure Trove’ of Cancer Genomes from Billions of Preserved Tissue Samples

New AI Method Makes it Possible to Analyse Cancer Genomes from FFPE Tissue Samples

Scientists have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) method that could unlock a research ‘treasure trove’ of cancer genomes from billions of preserved tissue samples stored routinely at hospitals over decades. The new method makes it possible for the first time...
Polygenic Risk Scores in diverse populations

Biobank Data Reveals African Ancestry is Less Likely to Identify High-Risk Individuals Through Polygenic...

An international research consortium led by the University of Helsinki has performed the largest study to date evaluating the transferability of genome-wide polygenic risk scores across ancestries. Polygenic risk scores (PRS) measure genetic disease susceptibility by combining risk effects...
