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
- Jochen Walker, InGef – Institut für angewandte Gesundheitsforschung Berlin GmbH, Berlin
- Mathias Wilhelm, Technical University Munich

Im Focus: Light from a roll – hybrid OLED creates innovative and functional luminous surfaces

Up to now, OLEDs have been used exclusively as a novel lighting technology for use in luminaires and lamps. However, flexible organic technology can offer much more: as an active lighting surface, it can be combined with a wide variety of materials, not just to modify but to revolutionize the functionality and design of countless existing products. To exemplify this, the Fraunhofer FEP together with the company EMDE development of light GmbH will be presenting hybrid flexible OLEDs integrated into textile designs within the EU-funded project PI-SCALE for the first time at LOPEC (March 19-21, 2019 in Munich, Germany) as examples of some of the many possible applications.

The Fraunhofer FEP, a provider of research and development services in the field of organic electronics, has long been involved in the development of...

Im Focus: Regensburg physicists watch electron transfer in a single molecule

For the first time, an international team of scientists based in Regensburg, Germany, has recorded the orbitals of single molecules in different charge states in a novel type of microscopy. The research findings are published under the title “Mapping orbital changes upon electron transfer with tunneling microscopy on insulators” in the prestigious journal “Nature”.

The building blocks of matter surrounding us are atoms and molecules. The properties of that matter, however, are often not set by these building blocks...
