Genomics: a new beginning

A startling revelation has been made by a group of math and computer experts that has been hard to digest. Leaving behind data consumption giants like you tube, twitter in social media and astronomy, particle physics in science the field that has emerged as a leader is genomics.  Genomics generate the most electronic bytes per year relative to other fields. It has been a challenge to capture, store and interpret the genome encoded biological information. Data generation has increased at a fast pace with the growth of biological sciences. Leading edge data generation and processing technologies are needed to tackle the present situation be it in the field of biological sciences or social media or high tech science.

Big data: Key to an Analytics-fuelled future

The rise of big data has been rapid. But very little emphasis has been placed on trying to understand exactly how big data can impact and improve our lives. Big data tools help in linking all information together and assess it from various standpoints at once in the hope of detecting new insights, to approach difficult questions from a fresh angle, or to process huge data sets very quickly. They also make the collection and processing of this data exponentially faster than before.
