The Indian Institute of Technology-Madras (IIT-M) has developed a machine learning-based computational tool called ‘GBMDriver’ for better detection of cancer-causing tumours in the brain and spinal cord. This web server is expected to help researchers to identify new cancer drivers and genes for therapeutic purposes. Through GBMDriver, oncologists can now, with the aid of machine learning, identify the possible location and extent of cancer spread. This will help oncologists and radiologists precisely diagnose, treat, and monitor cancer. The machine learning algorithm of GBMDriver can be modified for studying the genetics of any other disease with complex etiology.
