Data innovation: Transforming Bio-Business and Research
Davenport Hotel, Dublin - Thursday September 10th 2015.
Biologists are increasingly being challenged by data issues. More high-throughput instrumentation is becoming available, which increases data creation and this in turn resultsin the need for more sophisticated analysis and management of the data produced. The range of scientific areas in which this is occurring is also increasing. Genetic data has been expanding for decades, but data on proteins, biomarkers and many other biomaterials is also multiplying. In turn, screening for these genetic or other markers in animals and humans creates more scientific and clinical data and so on. In parallel, the regulatory requirement for appropriate and ethical storage of medical data adds a further layer of complexity to data management, for researchers, clinical research organisations and others. This meeting will look at these issues and how they are being tackled. It will also look at the opportunities which are being created by these developments.
