  • Google Health's New AI Study Achieves New Advances In Identification Of Genetic Diseases Using Machine Learning – MarkTechPost
    Studies have shown that genetic diseases can cause critical illnesses. Early detection of the underlying problem allows for life-saving treatments in many situations. Recent research shows that nearly 6% of all infants are affected by genetic or congenital disorders, yet clinical sequencing testing can take days or weeks to diagnose these diseases. 

    Genome sequencing has the potential to improve the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. To that end, Google Health has made significant breakthroughs in the rapid identification of genetic diseases and promoting genomic tests’ equity across ancestries. 

    To begin, the Google Health team has collaborated with the University of California Santa Cruz Genomics Institute to develop PEPPER-Margin-DeepVariant, a method for analyzing data for Oxford Nanopore sequencers. It is one of the fastest commercial sequencing technologies available today. 

    The findings show that this method detected a likely disease-causing variation in less than 8 hours after sequencing began in the quickest cases, compared to 13.5 hours in the previous fastest case.
