Using a new artificial intelligence identification method, researchers from UC San Diego and his collaborators have made a significant leap forward in understanding human cells, according to a report published Wednesday.

The pilot study — which combines microscopy, biochemical techniques and artificial intelligence in a technique known as Multi-Scale Integrated Cell — revealed about 70 components in a human kidney cell line, half of which had never been seen before.

“If you picture a cell, you probably see the colorful diagram in your cell biology textbook, showing mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, and nucleus. But is that the whole story? Absolutely not,” said Trey Ideker, a professor at UCSD’s School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center. “Scientists have long realized there’s more we don’t know than we know, but now we finally have a way to look deeper.”

The results were detailed in Wednesday’s issue of Nature.
