Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Fourth Annual

Bioinformatics for Big Data

Converting Data into Information and Knowledge

February 16-18, 2015 | Moscone North Convention Center | San Francisco, CA
Part of the 22nd Annual Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference

 

About this Conference:

The Fourth Annual Bioinformatics for Big Data Program will assemble thought leaders who will discuss the latest developments and applications of bioinformatics to big data in scientific discovery and biomedical research that are contributing to solving real clinical problems and unmet needs in the healthcare and life sciences environment. Themes include modeling of systems and networks, scalable analysis, big data and computational drug design and repositioning, and translating data to patient care. With the ever-increasing volume of information generated for curing or treating diseases and cancers, bioinformatics technologies, tools and techniques play a critical role in turning data into meaningful biological applications and knowledge.
