New deep learning algorithm can pick up genetic mutations and DNA mismatch repair deficiency in colorectal cancers more efficiently
A new deep learning algorithm created by researchers from the University of Warwick can pick up the molecular pathways and development of key mutations causing colorectal cancer more accurately than existing methods, meaning patients could benefit from targeted therapies with quicker turnaround times and at a lower cost.
A total of 37 University of Warwick researchers from across the fields of mathematics, life sciences, statistics, computer science, business, medicine and engineering have been named as Fellows of the Alan Turing Institute this year.
Since the introduction of plastic (polymer) banknotes in 2016, the number of counterfeit notes on the streets has increased, however, researchers from Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick have developed a novel technique called Polymer Substrate Fingerprinting, which identifies every banknote’s fingerprint which is unique and unclonable.
The physical origin of alcohol addiction has been located in a network of the human brain that regulates our response to danger, according to a team of British and Chinese researchers, co-led by the University of Warwick, the University of Cambridge, and Fudan University in Shanghai.
Professor Graham Cormode from the University of Warwick has been recognised for his contribution to Computer Science by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), by being named a 2020 fellow.
