First Impressions Go a Long Way in the Immune System

Weizmann Institute of Science

When immune cells and bacteria meet, the outcome is decided fairly quickly – including whether the bacteria will lie dormant, as in diseases like tuberculosis. Now, Weizmann Institute scientists have developed an algorithm that predicts how the immune system will respond to a pathogen, thus leading to early diagnosis for infectious diseases.

Artificial Intelligence Approach Points to Bright Future for Fusion Energy

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

A team of researchers led by Bill Tang of the US Department of Energy's (DOE's) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) and Princeton University recently tested its Fusion Recurrent Neural Network (FRNN) code, a novel artificial intelligence (AI) resource designed to predict plasma instabilities, on various high-performance computing (HPC) systems. A reliable way to predict and mitigate disruptions could accelerate the adoption of fusion as an environmentally friendly, virtually unlimited source of energy.

Queen’s researchers discover first ever species endangered from deep sea mining

Queen's University Belfast

Queen’s University Belfast researchers have discovered that the scaly-foot snail, or as it’s otherwise known - the sea pangolin, is the first species at risk of extinction due to potential deep sea mining by humans.

Learning to Look

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Inoviruses are filamentous viruses with small, single-stranded DNA genomes. Applying machine learning to more than 70,000 microbial and metagenome datasets, a team led by JGI scientists identified more than 10,000 inovirus-like sequences compared to the 56 previously known inovirus genomes.

Encephalitis Identified as Rare Toxicity of Immunotherapy Treatment

Vanderbilt University Medical Center

The results, published July 22 in Nature Medicine, are the latest findings by VICC researchers chronicling rare but serious toxicities that may occur with immune checkpoint inhibitors, the most widely prescribed class of immunotherapies. The researchers have previously identified myocarditis, pneumonitis, hepatitis, colitis and vasculitis as possible complications. Checkpoint inhibitors unleash the immune system to attack cancer, but they may also spur an attack on organs, resulting in inflammation that can, in most cases, be effectively treated with steroids.

ORNL scientists make fundamental discovery to creating better crops

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

A team of scientists led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory have discovered the specific gene that controls an important symbiotic relationship between plants and soil fungi, and successfully facilitated the symbiosis in a plant that typically resists it.
