Composing New Proteins with Artificial Intelligence

Proteins are the building blocks of life and scientists have long studied how to improve them or design new ones. Traditionally, new proteins are created by mimicking existing proteins or manually editing their amino acids. This process is time-consuming, and it is difficult to predict the impact of changing an amino acid. In APL Bioengineering, researchers explore how to create new proteins by using machine learning to translate protein structures into musical scores, presenting an unusual way to translate physics concepts across domains.

Top Doctors Limit Number of Tests They Order to Signal Diagnostic Prowess to Peers

A new study by Carey Business School researchers notes that some expert medical diagnosticians may order fewer patient tests as a way to indicate a high level of competence to their peers. They do so despite an increase in diagnostic techniques that can assess patient condition more accurately than former methods.
