April 2021, Understand the regulation of genes with artificial intelligence

Laborpraxis (in German): Komplexe KI-Anwendung
Mit künstlicher Intelligenz die Regulation der Gene vestehen

February 2021, Interview with Laura Martens, PhD candidate

Many diseases such as cancer or rheumatism are based on genetic defects. Will it be possible to treat them with gene therapy in the future? To get closer to this goal, MUDS doctoral researcher Laura Martens is trying to decipher the gene regulatory cell codes. She is being helped by data from the international megaproject Human Cell Atlas.
