Big Data

Big Data

The amount of biomedical data that is being amassed is increasing at a dramatic pace. The accumulated data is so “big” and complex that special algorithms and techniques are being devised to analyze it.

Upcoming Symposium

The Computational Medicine Center at Jefferson, The Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson & The University of Kansas Cancer Center announce

2020 Big in Big Data, September 8 – 9

A two day symposium, the latest advancements in precision medicine and disease disparities. Visit the event page.

Our approach to big data

Click here to learn more about our tools.

Machine Learning allows computers to “learn” from data, producing more powerful predictive models and giving physicians novel insights. >Explore
Machine Learning
We mine large collections of DNA and RNA sequencing data, public and our own, for nuggets of actionable information. >Explore
Mining Sequencing Data
We make a lot of our research findings available to the public through open databases. Our databases provide results fast, exhaustively and link to a large number of external resources. >Explore
Algorithm design is necessarily invoked in the presence of big data. Our algorithms and tools span a wide range of areas like pattern recognition, CRISPR design, miRNA target site prediction, etc. >Explore

Why Big Data

Big data permits unbiased investigations and has proven an invaluable source of unexpected discoveries in very diverse settings. Big data can capture an individual’s health profile, can help design novel diagnostics, can suggest candidate therapeutic targets, provide novel insights for mechanisms and events that we thought were well understood, etc.
