Software Hunts for Malignant Mutations


Cancer cells develop lots of mutations, but not all of them are relevant. Finding the 5 percent to 20 percent that are worth studying can be time consuming. Now, a team of Johns Hopkins engineers has developed groundbreaking computer software that will help narrow in on those relevant suspects. Rachel Karchin, an assistant professor of […]
