Up and GATOM
Researchers from the International Laboratory “Computer Technologies” have launched GATOM, an online platform that allows users to analyze genetic and biological processes on the atomic scale. This includes the study of metabolic processes and the various deviations found in living organisms. The scientists believe the tool will be helpful in developing treatments for cancer and autoimmune diseases.
