Answering biological and medical questions with genomic big data.
There is a group of biological and medical questions that can be answered or solved better with the use of big data approaches. The talk will present case studies of such ones: a prototype of genomic data warehouse and basics of big-data-driven nucleotide-precision RNA-seq analysis. They may lead to new types of insights, useful for medical research on the molecular level as well as in the clinical use. Such next-generation sequencing based genomics approaches are intended to bridge the gap between the large datasets and their useful interpretations in personalised medicine.
