Researchers at the University of Illinois and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications have advanced the use of genome wide association studies (GWAS) to identify multiple interacting markers for a given trait.
A recent study published in iScience researchers at Kanazawa University describes the role of a molecule, Netrin, in creating borders inside the brain to compartmentalize the functions of the brain.
When making sense of the massive amount of information packed into an ice core, scientists face a forensic challenge: how best to separate the useful information from the corrupt. Tools from information theory, a branch of complexity science, can quickly flag which segments, in over a million data points, require further investigation.
Machine learning to successfully predict the risk of developing possibly life-threatening infection from the genomic features of a bacterial isolate.
One transistor, just a pair of inductors and capacitors. Such a simple electronic circuit can become an oscillator with a surprising richness of behavior. However, even more interesting effects become visible if the structure of connections is fractal and shows some... imperfections. Could similar rules explain the diversity and complexity of the human brain dynamics?
The research has proven that pupils who engage in puzzle solving consistently show higher aptitude in IQ tests. As a s result, a number of recommendations appeared considering the inclusion of puzzles into various types of teaching activities. They can potentially boost logical and abstract thinking, combinatorial and spatial skills, and mathematical memory.
The mathematical models can be used not only for quantum networks and authentication but also for full-scale quantum computing. Quantum hashing can help protect quantum algorithms against mistakes. Relevant research is currently in progress at Kazan Federal University.
New laboratory techniques can identify which of our genes are influenced by DNA snippets that are left behind in our genetic code by viruses.
Since the arrival of the Asian longhorned tick (Haemaphysalis longicornis) in North America was first reported in New Jersey in early 2018, it has been found in eight other states in the US And, by the looks of a new study comparing North American habitat with the invasive tick's native territory, it shouldn't be a surprise if it shows up in many more.
Researchers at PNNL teamed up to find out if deep learning--a distinct subset of machine learning--can do a better job at identifying clouds in lidar data than the current physics-based algorithms. The answer: A clear 'yes.' The new model is much closer to the answers scientists arrive at but in just a fraction of the time.
