Researchers at The University of Hong Kong (HKU) have developed a new bioinformatics tool to precisely predict cell transformation and disease formation, including cancers.

Omics data analysis, which seeks to capture the rich information of single cells at high precision, is important for tracking cells transformation and hence for the prediction of occurrence and recurrence of diseases, and for survival analysis and discovery of biomarkers. An interdisciplinary team at HKU has now created a computational tool for studying omics data that overcomes current challenges in the study of normal and malignant cell transformation, which they have described in the journal Nature Communications.
