The frontier of Big Data in Genomics

biodata-world-logos-2016The Pistoia Alliance is a media partner for the BioData World Congress. This blog post is published as part of our collaboration with them.

Welcome to the frontier of Big Data in Genomics.

Healthcare is officially joining the big data club. With the advent of high-throughput genomics, life scientists are starting to grapple with massive data sets, encountering challenges with handling, processing and moving information that were once the domain of astronomers and physicists.

With the advent of revolutionary high-powered computing architecture and the exponential decrease in the cost of sequencing, this new era has now truly begun with the likes of Genomics England’s 100k Genome Project taking centre stage.

That’s why, with the help from our partners we’re once again hosting the BioData World Congress, the world’s leading event for pioneers working in Big Data, genomics and precision medicine.

The meeting follows on from the huge success of the inaugural EU congress and is held in support and/or partnership of: Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, EMBL-EBI, Global Alliance for Genomics and Health, Pistoia Alliance, Babraham Institute, Farr Institute, Crick Institute, Cancer Research UK and the Broad Institute.
