Google DeepMind AI speeds up search for disease genes

Health & Wellbeing, Science & Technology
Google's AI firm DeepMind has used artificial intelligence to identify changes in human DNA that might cause diseases. The researchers believe they have pinpointed 89% of all the key mutations. The development is expected to speed up diagnosis and help in the search for better treatments. A leading independent scientist told BBC News that the work was "a big step forward". Prof Ewan Birney, deputy director general of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, said: "It will help clinical researchers prioritise where to look to find areas that could cause disease." The technique works by checking the order of the components in human DNA strands. All living organisms are built from DNA. It is made from four blocks of chemicals called adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G) ...
