Machine Learning Approach Gives Insight on Toxin Exposure
Harvard Medical School investigators have developed a machine learning approach using high-quality, large-scale animal model data that sheds new light on the biology of the liver and kidneys after toxin exposure. The findings were recently published in Molecular Systems Biology, and reveal new mechanisms of toxin vulnerability and tolerance that may be broadly relevant to studies of human disease, the authors said. Researchers found nine distinct patterns of response to chemical exposure that the authors termed "disease states." These states shed light on the dynamics of toxin-induced liver and kidney injury, inc...
