• Avoiding the Traps and Pitfalls of Artificial Intelligence Development

    Jun 19 | Bio-IT World | Artificial intelligence (AI) was the main topic at the 2024 Bio-IT World Conference & Expo. While there was much excitement over new developments, there were also many discussions covering the obstacles that block the path to further progress—many of which have nothing to do with technology or data.

  • Regeneron’s Platform Play for Protein Prediction at Scale

    Jun 18 | Bio-IT World | AlphaFold was revolutionary to protein scientists and their work, but as soon as the new capabilities became clear, scientific demand exploded. Regeneron engineers used the AlphaFold2 model to create a custom, cloud-based solution to allow analysis of thousands of protein binding partners in parallel. More
  • Ruth Marinshaw on the State of Data in the Academic Sphere

    Jun 13 | Bio-IT World | Data is a double-edged sword in the industry. It is a necessary tool for technological developments, especially artificial intelligence (AI), but the excess generation of data has become a thorn on the sides of researchers and companies. And for universities, they have their own sets of problems to deal with. More
  • UK Biobank Pivoting to Platform-Only Model For Big Data Sharing

    Jun 12 | Bio-IT World | When it comes to big data, the largest amount comes from whole genome sequencing (WGS). At the population scale, WGS produces petabytes of information that for sharing purposes requires cloud computing capabilities. That realization came early to UK Biobank. More
  • NVIDIA Launches Generative AI-in-a-Box

    Jun 11 | Bio-IT World | At COMPUTEX Taipei earlier this month, NVIDIA launched NIM—NVIDIA Inference Microservices—a simple, standardized way to add generative AI to applications. Data generation—rather than retrieval—is poised to take over computing. More
  • Automating FAIR, Clean Data Generation from Flow Cytometry at Regeneron

    Jun 06 | Bio-IT World | Ronald Realubit, Principal Scientific Business Analyst (Therapeutic Ab Development) at Regeneron, presented a map of the Regeneron team members behind the Automated High-Throughput Flow Cytometry Data Processing Pipeline project, highlighting 38 team members by name. The pipeline was one of three Regeneron projects that won a 2024 Bio-IT World Innovative Practices Award, all sharing the “Informatics to Achieve Operational Excellence” category. More
  • Precise, Integrated Gene Correction and Integration Offers Therapeutic Benefits

    Jun 05 | Bio-IT World | During his keynote address at last month’s PEGS Boston, David Liu, director of the Merkin Institute of Transformative Technologies in Healthcare, vice-chair of the faculty at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator, described how the laboratory evolution of gene editing systems has enabled efficient and programmable gene correction or even whole gene integration.

  • Oxford Nanopore’s Clive Brown Looks Back and Ahead

    Jun 04 | Bio-IT World | The Oxford Nanopore vision was of a “new generation of single-strand sequencing technology, featuring accurate long reads of single-stranded DNA molecules,” Bio-IT World reported from the 2012 event. Today, Brown’s big ideas include whole-chromosome sequencing, flow cell loading without a pipette, and advances in chemistry, electrical engineering, and commercial format. More
  • Pan-RAS Inhibitor Offers Hope of Improved Pancreatic Cancer Prognosis

    May 30 | Bio-IT World | A consortium of pancreatic cancer researchers sharing information in real time has shown that an oral pan-RAS inhibitor known as RMC-7977, developed by Revolution Medicines, effectively targets the common cancer-causing RAS proteins while minimally impacting normal cells—and did so across a comprehensive range of preclinical models in a series of similar experiments.
