Many diseases that we cannot currently cure, such as cancer, Alzheimer's and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), are caused by variations in the DNA sequence. It is often unknown which characteristics caused the disease. Knowing these would greatly help our understanding of the underlying disease mechanisms, and would boost drug development. At CWI we develop methods based on artificial intelligence (AI) to help find the genetic causes of disease, with promising first results.
