In the NewsCBIIT, NCI, and Colleagues Set New Bioinformatic Benchmarks for Genetic Variants in Two Distinct Cell Lines Linked to Breast CancerStaff from CBIIT and NCI, alongside partners from NIH, FDA, and a consortium of scientists from across the world, joined forces to create reference samples and data call sets to help the cancer community further decipher cancer-related gene mutations. Their findings were recently published in Nature Biotechnology.Artificial Intelligence offers boundless possibilities, especially in the healthcare field. In a recent CBIIT Data Science Seminar, Dr. James Zou showed how Computer Vision (CV) is helping create a new data-driven “language of morphology” that allows researchers to be more precise in interpreting histological images. Just as computers help propel self-driving cars along busy roadways, CV offers a faster, less-subjective method for assessing disease.NCI offers a broad range of fellowships, enabling us to tap some of the brightest minds in science and technology to further advance scientific discovery. Here, Joseph Flores-Toro, Ph.D., a fellow in the Office of Data Sharing (ODS), describes the path he took in becoming a fellow for CBIIT.
