The tremors that shook the life sciences community last December were mere prelude. Back then, at a biennial protein-prediction competition, an artificial intelligence (AI) tool called AlphaFold delivered an outstanding performance, predicting structures quite as well as X-ray crystallography or cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), the gold standard experimental techniques. Now, AlphaFold has produced an eruption: a

An international team of researchers published an article (“Identification of altered cell signaling pathways using proteomic profiling in stable and progressive chronic lymphocytic leukemia”) in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology that reportedly reveals that certain protein markers may indicate which patients have stable forms of CLL and which have more aggressive types. Identifying these proteins
