In October 2016, at one of the world leading centres of genomic research, the BioData World Congress will bring you the people and the issues that are shaping the science and the business in the drive towards precision medicine.
Held with the support of the Sanger Institute, the EBI the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health and The Pistoia Alliance, the BioData World Congress aims to showcase innovation, demonstrate success and break
through the obstacles and barriers to ensure that the innovations in genomics get to the patient with speed and efficiency.
With a mixture of keynote sessions, roundtables, focused work tracks, site visits, product demonstrations and networking parties, this event will push the boundaries in order to realise the power of big data in precision medicine.
Challenges that will be looked into include:
How to manage data generated in bioinformatics
How to utilise NGS to develop more targeted therapeutics
How to practically apply genomic data in precision medicine
Utilizing the Cloud for collaborative research
Developing secure information systems
Ethical considerations in the sharing of genomic data
How to transition big data into the clinic
How to access open source technologies in LS research
How to apply big data analytics to mine information
