New machine learning technique to accelerate the process of drug screening

By Ria Kakkad, contributing writer for

Scientists at Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, US have developed a machine learning method to quantitatively analyze and compare microscopy images of proteins. Their algorithm, dubbed “cytoself”, provides information on protein location and function within a cell. The findings, which were recently reported in Nature Methods, could quicken research time for cell biologists and eventually be used to accelerate the process of drug discovery and drug screening.
