DeepMind’s AlphaMissense AI Tool Efficiently Forecasts Genetic Disease Likelihood

  • AlphaMissense, a machine learning model from Google’s DeepMind, can examine missense variants and predict their potential to cause disease with 90% accuracy.
  • The AI tool, developed by ex-physics student Žiga Avsec, is built on AlphaFold and works akin to a large language model.
  • It operates by learning the sequence of amino acids in proteins, enabling it to identify deviations, thereby predicting the possibility of genetic diseases.
