Speaking the Language of the Genome: Gordon Bell Finalist Applies Large Language Models to Predict New COVID Variants

A finalist for the Gordon Bell special prize for high performance computing-based COVID-19 research has taught large language models (LLMs) a new lingo — gene sequences — that can unlock insights in genomics, epidemiology and protein engineering. Published in October, the groundbreaking work is a collaboration by more than two dozen academic and commercial researchers […]
