Blacklisting

Genetic Analysis Simplified with ‘Blacklisting’

Scientists have discovered a new method to filter genetic variations. Researchers from Icahn School of Medicine (Mount Sinai), and the Rockerfeller University collaborated for this study. The researchers employed the popular concept of ‘blacklisting’ in genome streamlining. In computational methods, blacklisting is a kind of spam or access control, which blocks unwanted messages and files. This concept is being used as a way to filter genomes. The algorithm differentiates the
