AI predicts the layout of human stem cells

The structures of stem cells can vary wildly, even if they’re genetically identical — and that could be critical to predicting the onset of diseases like cancer.

That’s where the Allen Institute wants to help: it’s launching an online database, the Allen Cell Explorer, where deep learning AI predicts the layout of human stem cells. You only need a pair of identifying structures, like the position of the nucleus, to fill out the rest of the cell’s innards.
