Big Data is becoming one of the most significant advancements of the last decade.
With data showing the ability to contribute to everything from election predictions to transportation services, extracting useful information from extremely large datasets is transforming multiple scientific fields, and the biological sciences are no different. Billions of data points on genes, proteins and other molecules, as well as large volumes of patient data, can give us precious insights to better predict and treat disease. Over the next decade, discoveries through the use of computational models will allow us to leverage that data into meaningful information, contributing to the improvement of healthcare globally.
