BioData World Congress
is the world's leading event for individuals working with Big Data in precision medicine.
Precision medicine is 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 high-energy 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 the 100k Genome Project taking center stage in the efforts to drive genomics into the clinic.
However, with the vast quantity of personal data there come challenges and questions into how to implement infrastructure and deliver this data in a usable format. Welcoming in this new generation of healthcare is a multifaceted effort requiring academics, commercial businesses, clinicians and pharmaceutical companies and of course the patients to congress and discuss how to develop this new exciting field of healthcare.
The event will showcase innovation, demonstrate success and break through the obstacles and barriers to ensure that the innovations in genomics and big data enter the clinic with speed and efficiency. It will aim to make the dream of stratified medicine a reality.
Over 100 speakers and 300+ attendees were there in 2016, from 101 institutions and 21 countries. Join us and be part of the story…
