The inequalities that exist in society have been shown to be replicated in AI because the algorithms behind them are created by people (the almost 80 per cent male tech sector) with their own biases, which are "passed on" into the coding DNA of some of the technology around us -- all the more reason to have a diverse workforce developing tomorrow's technology.
Recent years have witnessed the use of coding DNA sequences to investigate DNA watermarking for tracking parent genes in offspring or genetically modified organisms and for protecting DNA copyright [7-14].
To further reveal the genome-wide methylation pattern, MeDIP-Seq reads distribution were analyzed in 2 kb region upstream of the transcription start sites (TSS), 5'-UTRs, coding DNA sequence (CDS), introns, 3'-UTRs, 2 kb region downstream of the transcription termination site (TTS) and repeats (Figure 2).
