It’s impossible to predict what the hottest new tools will be, but here are a few gems that caught our attention
How social media sites are rapidly doing unique research on large cohorts
A Model for Extracting Literature-based Knowledge
The complexity and variability of aging itself, along with the fragmented nature of researchers’ current understanding of aging, call for tools that can help scientists dig through mounds of data to find often subtle connections.
Computation helps evaluate the nature of the NIH research portfolio in ways that were previously very difficult.
Exceptional computational detective work has the potential to reshape our understanding of when and why diseases strike
Seeking a non-invasive approach to cancer diagnosis and prognosis
Using computational models, researchers are gaining traction toward understanding what makes a stem cell a stem cell; how gene expression drives stem cell differentiation; why studying stem cell heterogeneity is important; and, ultimately, how stem cells control their fate.
