Event description:

Various types of data related to sequence (DNA, RNA and protein), pathways, reaction parameters, gene expression, gene ontology are being generated through different high throughput technologies in the field of molecular biology. In general, these data are complex and are existing in different nature including structured, unstructured and semi structured. The amount of these data is huge and has led to the most discussed current trend Big Data in bioinformatics. Different people think of different things when they hear about Big Data. For statisticians, the challenge is to get various statistical parameters and thereby to draw inference on these data. The computer and information science people wish to extract usable information out of databases that are so huge and complex that many of the traditional or classical methods cannot handle. Thus, Big Data Analytics would be helpful to analyze huge, complex and heterogeneous data and provide the insight in timely manner. The most importantly Big Data analytics provides cost effective solutions to deliver information effectively. The workshop on Big Data in Bioinformatics is devoted to promoting the highest standards in research and education in this field in the area of bioinformatics. It features keynote thematic presentations by recognized leaders and luminaries who have significantly advanced the domain. It also hosts an educational session where students can interact with established researchers and principal investigators.
