Workshop Personalized Medicine and Bioinformatics
In the last years, sequencing and high-throughput „omics“ technologies have become very fast and cost-efficient, thanks to enormous technological advances. As a consequence, large amounts of data on individuals can be generated making the vision of a personalized medicine realistic. This new interface between bioinformatics and big data introduces significant challenges to the bioinformatics community: How to translate the data into useful information about the individual patient? How can algorithms, machine learning methods or statistical analysis help getting new insights into individual predisposition, more efficient diagnostics and options for a personalized therapy? The workshop Bioinformatics and personalized medicine will bring together experts from the fields of bioinformatics and personalized medicine to address these questions.
