Dark Matter Matters: AI Makes DNA Dark Matter Useful

What is the minimal description that captures a space? Asking a mathematician’s basic question of a  biological dataset reveals interesting answers about biology itself. This summarizes our underlying approach to subtyping hematological cancer. Disease subtyping is a central tenet of precision medicine, and is the challenging task of identifying and classifying patients with similar presentations […]
