Deep learning cracks the code of messenger RNAs and protein-coding potential
Researchers at Oregon State University have used deep learning to decipher which ribonucleic acids have the potential to encode proteins. "Deep learning may seem scary to some people, but at the end of the day, it's just crunching numbers," said David Hendrix, the study's lead author. "It's a tool just like calculus or linear algebra, one that we can use to learn biological patterns. The amount of sequencing data we have now is huge, and deep learning is well suited to face the challenges associated with the vast amount of data and to learn new biological rules that characterize the function of these molecules."
