Tengo edad suficiente para haber estado involucrado en la determinación de la secuencia de los genes en el genoma humano. Recuerdo que estaba en el laboratorio a altas horas de la noche leyendo la decencia de un gen recientemente descubierto que controla el crecimiento humano y pensado que yo podía ser la primera persona en la historia de leer esa secuencia. ¡ No estoy seguro de si eso era  correcta, pero fue muy emocionante!

INDIANAPOLIS -- "It's pretty straightforward to teach a computer to recognize AML, once you develop a robust algorithm, and in previous work we did it with almost 100 percent accuracy," said Murat Dundar, senior author of the disease-progression study and associate professor of computer science in the School of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.

INDIANAPOLIS -- How to distinguish -- or as it is technically known, disambiguate -- people with common names and determine which John Smith or Maria Garcia or Wei Zhang or Omar Ali is a specific John Smith, Maria Garcia, Wei Zhang or Omar Ali -- or even someone previously unidentified? 

This conundrum occurs in a wide range of environments from the bibliographic -- which Anna Hernandez authored a specific study? -- to the law enforcement -- which Robert Jones is attempting to board an airplane flight?

INDIANAPOLIS -- The researchers found that early embryonic alcohol exposure alters several important signaling activities in the growing heart, resulting in faulty heart valve development. 

The IUPUI scientists studied zebrafish to identify the causal link between alcohol intake and defects in heart-valve formation. Zebrafish are biologically similar to humans with the majority of human genes -- including those related to cardiac valve development -- having zebrafish gene counterparts.
