In March 2012, the Obama Administration launched a $200 million "Big Data Research and Development Initiative," which aims to improve the tools and techniques needed to access, organize, and glean discoveries from huge volumes of digital data. The initiative will help to transform the use of big data in various sectors including scientific discovery and biomedical research. Big data in medical research is transforming research from hypothesis-driven to data-driven. Efficient analysis and interpretation of big medical data can open up new avenues to explore, new questions to ask, and new ways to answer, leading to better understanding of diseases and development of better and personalized diagnostics and therapeutics. This conference aims to provide the latest developments and applications of big data in scientific discovery and biomedical research. With the ever-increasing volume of information generated for curing or treating diseases and cancers, bioinformatics technologies, tools and techniques play a critical role in turning data into meaningful biological applications and knowledge.
