IIT Madras researchers develop AI tool to identify cancer-causing genes
Tags: Science and Technology
An Artificial Intelligence-based tool named 'PIVOT' has been developed by researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras).
PIVOT is designed to predict genes that are responsible for causing cancer.
This AI-based tool will help in developing strategies for personalised cancer treatment.
PIVOT is able to predict cancer-causing genes in patients.
The PIVOT tool was developed based on the machine learning model, which categorises genes as tumour oncogenes, suppressor genes or neutral genes.
It successfully predicted oncogenes as well as tumour-suppressor genes such as TP53, and PIK3CA.
How does this work?
PIVOT is a machine learning tool.
It uses a variety of data, including mutations and gene expression, to predict cancer-causing genes.
These genes are called driver genes.
It helps in formulating personalised cancer treatment strategies.
