Biologists Pioneer First Method to Decode Gene Expression

Genomic ‘Rosetta Stone’ taps powerful algorithm to identify expressible genes at near-perfect accuracy

Given the recent remarkable advancements in genetics, it’s easy to assume that 21st century scientists have at their disposal a clear, quick way to run a genomic sequence scan and find out which genes among thousands can be expressed and which cannot. Gene expression is the process by which information encoded within genes leads to key products, such as proteins.
