Supercomputers Pave the Way for New Machine Learning Approach

University of California San Diego

Researchers have developed a machine learning approach called transfer learning that lets them model novel materials by learning from data collected about millions of other compounds. The new approach can be applied to new molecules in milliseconds, enabling research into a far greater number of compounds over much longer timescales.

New, fundamental limit to ‘seeing and believing’ in imaging

Washington University in St. Louis

As researchers probe smaller parts of our world, a "picture" is not always showing what it may seem to show. One researcher at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis has uncovered a fundamental limit to our ability to trust what we see when it comes to images of molecular motion.

$3 million grant will fund search for biological basis of major depressive disorder

University of Alabama at Birmingham

A $3 million NIH grant will probe underlying biological changes of major depressive disorder, with a focus on epitranscriptomics. Early study of human postmortem MDD brains shows changes in amounts of enzymes that add or remove methyl groups to mRNA and changes in the mRNA targets of these enzymes.
