Military leaders worry that gene drives could be weaponized and say they are spending millions to counteract the potential threat.
The deep learning tool can assemble a full genome from raw DNA more accurately than every existing method.
The big-ticket acquisition of genetic design company Cell Design Labs signals a coming wave of precision cures.
Research was conducted by Richards and his graduate student Jordan Guerguiev, at the University of Toronto, Scarborough, in collaboration with Timothy Lillicrap at Google DeepMind. Their algorithm was based on neurons in the neocortex, which is responsible for higher order thought.
Cloning didn’t cause the famous sheep to age prematurely.
Tokyo-based NTT along with the National Institute of Informatics and the University of Tokyo are working on a quantum computing device that exploits the properties of light. Backed with state investment, the quantum neural network (QNN) prototype is reported to be capable of prolonged operation at room temperature.
A PhD student in Ontario has made a groundbreaking discovery that may have the potential to prevent cancer cells from spreading.
‘We no longer have to live with the genetics we had when we were born... even somebody who is uninformed or less informed could effectively create a CRISPR targeting system to a gene with really little effort or knowledge’
Using sensors the car can conduct its own health check to detect any damages and self-repair itself by filling the crack with nanotubes to prevent it spreading.
