It is a kind of “data fusion,” adds Mark B. Gerstein, PhD, Albert L. Williams Professor of Biomedical Informatics, professor of molecular biophysics and biochemistry, of computer science, and of statistics and data science, and CBDS co-director. “We’re integrating all the different types of data together, and that’s just something that is hard to do in a completely generic, automated way. You need to think about what you’re putting together.”

On the hunt for the genetic roots of mental illnesses

QT:[[”
The model, a form of artificial intelligence, aims to use abstract knowledge gained in the research lab to improve clinical treatments for real patients. The ultimate goal, says Gerstein, is to use the model to develop pharmaceutical treatments that reduce the impact of schizophrenia. Part of the challenge in developing drugs to treat the disease is the fact that it is not a one-size-fits-all condition. “]]

Mystery RNA spawns gene-activating peptides : Nature News

It should be possible to scan the genome for sequences encoding peptides shorter than 100 amino acids, says Mark Gerstein, a computational biologist at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, but sorting through the many ‘hits’ to determine which are functional is likely to be much more difficult.

Meanwhile, Gerstein notes that the polished rice peptides could also have implications for how we view pseudogenes, which have long been thought to be defunct relics of protein-coding genes. Pseudogenes often contain many signals that would stop protein synthesis and, as a result, could only encode short amino-acid chains. “Maybe this would provide a new way for pseudogenes to have some sort of function,” he says.
