Deciphering the Language of DNA to Identify Regulatory Elements and Classify Transcripts Into Functional Classes

Project description

Decoding the language of DNA

Genomic sequences resemble the human language in the sense that nucleotides and codons transmit information in a similar way to how phonemes and syllables comprise the units of the spoken language. A genomic sequence can encode a protein, or it could relay a regulatory or structural message. Scientists of the EU-funded LanguageOfDNA project will employ algorithms designed for the processing of human languages to classify RNA transcripts and untranslated genomic regions. Through the establishment of DNA/RNA language models, they will be able to interpret any genomic sequence and contribute to the functional delineation of the human genome.
