Big data from small sources: today's computing demands in molecular and cell biology

Sunday 20 March: 1:00pm - 1:45pm

Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, Robinson Way, CB2 0RE

The revolutions in genomics, proteomics and advanced imaging techniques mean biological data is being collected and generated faster than ever before. At CRUK CI, scientists produce terabytes of data each week, more than their predecessors generated in a decade. In this talk Dr Peter Maccallum, the Institute's Head of Scientific Computing and IT, will discuss how his team have addressed the challenges of storing and processing these novel kinds of information to allow researchers to carry out informative analysis on the data.
