Answers to questions not yet asked: Informatics strategy applied to scientific questions

Recorded On: 02/05/2018

The amount of scientific data generated in current life science research is too large to be analyzed without informatic tools. While automation and new statistical algorithms provide useful tools for the analysis of large amounts of data, one also needs to ask the appropriate scientific questions to pursue discovery. This presentation will describe how we used different technologies to address the specific needs in various scientific domains in a sustainable way. Topics such as software architecture, data integration, visualization will be considered.
