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: The working of a molecular string phone

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Potsdam (both in Germany) and the University of Toronto (Canada) have pieced together a detailed time-lapse movie revealing all the major steps during the catalytic cycle of an enzyme. Surprisingly, the communication between the protein units is accomplished via a water-network akin to a string telephone. This communication is aligned with a ‘breathing’ motion, that is the expansion and contraction of the protein.

This time-lapse sequence of structures reveals dynamic motions as a fundamental element in the molecular foundations of biology.

Im Focus: Milestones on the Way to the Nuclear Clock

Two research teams have succeeded simultaneously in measuring the long-sought Thorium nuclear transition, which enables extremely precise nuclear clocks. TU Wien (Vienna) is part of both teams.

If you want to build the most accurate clock in the world, you need something that "ticks" very fast and extremely precise. In an atomic clock, electrons are...

Im Focus: Graphene sets the stage for the next generation of THz astronomy detectors

Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology have demonstrated a detector made from graphene that could revolutionize the sensors used in next-generation space telescopes. The findings were recently published in the scientific journal Nature Astronomy.

Beyond superconductors, there are few materials that can fulfill the requirements needed for making ultra-sensitive and fast terahertz (THz) detectors for...

Im Focus: Physicists from Stuttgart prove the existence of a supersolid state of matte

A supersolid is a state of matter that can be described in simplified terms as being solid and liquid at the same time. In recent years, extensive efforts have been devoted to the detection of this exotic quantum matter. A research team led by Tilman Pfau and Tim Langen at the 5th Institute of Physics of the University of Stuttgart has succeeded in proving experimentally that the long-sought supersolid state of matter exists. The researchers report their results in Nature magazine.

In our everyday lives, we are familiar with matter existing in three different states: solid, liquid, or gas. However, if matter is cooled down to extremely...
