Invitation to the upcoming "Current Topics in Bioinformatics: Big Data in Genomics and Medicine"

13.04.2018

The workshop “Current Topics in Bioinformatics – Big Data in Genomics and Medicine” will present the challenges in applying genomics data to improve clinical research and healthcare and highlight the problems and opportunities arising from it. The event will take place at the Magnus House Berlin on May 7th, 2018.

Recent advances in genomics technologies like next-generation sequencing or mass spectrometry provide huge amounts of data that has never been imaginable before. Applying these techniques in biomedical studies and medical practice allows building individualized strategies for diagnostic or therapeutic decision-making by utilizing patients’ genomic information.


“Precision medicine” enables physicians to predict very accurately, which therapeutic and preventive approaches to a specific illness can work effectively for individual patients based on their genetic make-up, lifestyle, and environmental factors. Such new approaches in medicine and healthcare will deeply shape our future.

Big data analytics forms the basis for this development, as it uncovers hidden patterns, unknown correlations, and provides insight through examining heterogeneous large-scale data sets. However, the volume and complexity of the data pose significant challenges for its use in clinical practice since conventional data processing algorithms cannot deal with them anymore.

The workshop “Current Topics in Bioinformatics – Big Data in Genomics and Medicine” will present the challenges in applying genomics data to improve clinical research and healthcare and highlight the problems and opportunities arising from it.

We are proud to present the following speakers:

- Djork-Arné Clevert, Bayer AG, Berlin
- Alice McHardy, Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research, Braunschweig
- Roland Schwarz, Max-Delbrück-Centrum für Molekulare Medizin, Berlin
- Lee Stopak, Ada Health GmbH, Berlin

Im Focus: Harnessing the rain for hydrovoltaics

Drops of water falling on or sliding over surfaces may leave behind traces of electrical charge, causing the drops to charge themselves. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz have now begun a detailed investigation into this phenomenon that accompanies us in every-day life. They developed a method to quantify the charge generation and additionally created a theoretical model to aid understanding. According to the scientists, the observed effect could be a source of generated power and an important building block for understanding frictional electricity.

Water drops sliding over non-conducting surfaces can be found everywhere in our lives: From the dripping of a coffee machine, to a rinse in the shower, to an...

Im Focus: Blocking the Iron Transport Could Stop Tuberculosis

The bacteria that cause tuberculosis need iron to survive. Researchers at the University of Zurich have now solved the first detailed structure of the transport protein responsible for the iron supply. When the iron transport into the bacteria is inhibited, the pathogen can no longer grow. This opens novel ways to develop targeted tuberculosis drugs.

One of the most devastating pathogens that lives inside human cells is Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacillus that causes tuberculosis. According to the...

Im Focus: Physicist from Hannover Develops New Photon Source for Tap-proof Communication

An international team with the participation of Prof. Dr. Michael Kues from the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD at Leibniz University Hannover has developed a new method for generating quantum-entangled photons in a spectral range of light that was previously inaccessible. The discovery can make the encryption of satellite-based communications much more secure in the future.

A 15-member research team from the UK, Germany and Japan has developed a new method for generating and detecting quantum-entangled photons at a wavelength of...

Im Focus: Junior scientists at the University of Rostock invent a funnel for light

Together with their colleagues from the University of Würzburg, physicists from the group of Professor Alexander Szameit at the University of Rostock have devised a “funnel” for photons. Their discovery was recently published in the renowned journal Science and holds great promise for novel ultra-sensitive detectors as well as innovative applications in telecommunications and information processing.

The quantum-optical properties of light and its interaction with matter has fascinated the Rostock professor Alexander Szameit since College.
