Researchers developed DEPLOY, an AI tool that can classify brain tumors into 10 major subtypes with 95% accuracy. The tool analyzes microscopic images of tumor tissue, providing a faster and more accessible alternative to DNA methylation-based profiling. DEPLOY could potentially be used to classify other cancers as well. [...]
