Cambridge 25-26. 10 2016.
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.
We have partnered with the worlds of leading organizations: EMBL EBI, Genomics England, Sanger Institute and many others to deliver the BioData World Congress. 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.
