One of the hardest parts of genetic research is reading DNA. In 2013, scientists invented Assay for Transposase-Accessible Chromatin using sequencing (ATAC-Seq), a method of rooting around in chromatin to see what’s going on. Enter AtacWorks, a machine learning program that augments ATAC-Seq and makes the data much easier to read. To train AtacWork, scientists fed it a raw chromatin dataset and the same dataset after it had been cleaned up using ATAC-Seq. Fundamentally, what is happening here is that AI—powered by GPUs typically used for gaming (and increasingly, of course, research)—is making key genetic research both much easier and much faster.
