An Artificial Intelligence-based tool that can predict cancer-causing genes in an individual has been developed, paving the way for devising personalised cancer treatment strategies, said researchers at the IIT Madras. The tool named 'PIVOT' is designed to predict cancer causing genes based on a model that utilises information on mutations, expression of genes, and copy number variation in genes and perturbations in the biological network due to an altered gene expression."
