Big Data Meets Big Biology on April 26: Early Bird Rate Ends Soon

Xconomy National — 

Xconomy will explore the confluence of “big biology” with “big data” at our half-day forum on April 26.

Just as the computing industry opened the way to technologies that enabled people to manage and analyze information in unprecedented ways, a new era in biology is opening the way for new technologies for understanding and using the code of life. And just as software focused initially on the IT sector before revolutionizing industries through companies like Amazon, Ebay, and Lyft, today’s innovations in the life sciences are expected to ripple through other industries as well.

The biggest revolutions, though, are expected to come as the tools of high-performance computing are applied to manage and analyze information being generated in the life sciences. Where will the breakthroughs occur?

Join the discussion at Big Data Meets Big Biology with leaders in genomics, healthtech, academics, and other fields at the Illumina Theater at The Alexandria.
