CRISPR ML

Established: September 14, 2016

End-to-end guide design for CRISPR/Cas9 with machine learning Elevation To enable more effective guide design we have developed the first machine learning-based approach to assess CRISPR/Cas9 off-target effects. Our approach consistently and substantially outperformed the state-of the-art over multiple, independent…

Computational Biology at MSR New England

Established: January 1, 2011

We encompass several approaches to computational biology: we try to frame the biological question under consideration in terms of more standard problems in computer science, like clustering, Steiner trees, flow problems, etc., and then use approximation algorithms motivated by…
