Challenge: What Kind of Infection?
- Many medical offices have few testing options for discovering disease source.
- Providers can be unsure if an infection is viral or bacterial.
- Lack of clarity leads to improper prescription of antibiotics.
Solution: Look for the Body’s Response
- Bacterial, viral, and fungal infections each cause different genetic responses in the body.
- Use blood test to measure this genetic response and find the infection type.
- Use supervised learning to model the probabilities of viral infections, bacterial infections, etc.
Impact: A Better Diagnosis
- New insight about previously untested medical conditions.
- Gives patients and doctors better clarity about care.
- Reduces inappropriate antibiotic use, saving money and improving public health.

The relative expression of gene 1 is the most important factor in classifying whether the patient has a bacterial, viral, or fungal infection, has a non-infection immune response, or is healthy.
The distribution accounts for variance across multiple rounds of model training.
