"Putting a computer science spin on genetic diagnostics
By Casey Johnston |

Collections of genetic profiles have continued to grow steadily, but
scientists have struggled a bit with finding the most effective way to
use them. In a paper published in PNAS this week, a group of
researchers took one of the larger gene expression data repositories
and sought to parse its disease-related data with a few computational
techniques. They were able to use the resulting database in
conjunction with a diagnostic program to accurately diagnose a given
gene expression profile up to 95 percent of the time. "
