Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Second Annual

Genomics & Sequencing Data Integration, Analysis and Visualization

Impact of Data Quality and Novel Bioinformatics Tools on Life Sciences Research and Clinical Decisions

February 19-20, 2015 | The InterContinental San Francisco | San Francisco, CA
Part of the 22nd International Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference


About this Symposium:

The Second Annual Genomics & Sequencing Data Integration, Analysis and Visualization Symposium will present real-world cases on the impact of data quality, bioinformatics tools, and statistical analysis methods on life sciences research and clinical decisions using genomic data. The key is enabling researchers, scientists, and clinical data providers to derive insights and relationships in the big data sets from diverse groups and diverse origins to make better assessments, interpretations, and decisions. Thought leaders will discuss data quality, data type differences, who has the data, how is the data put together, what data is needed to address specific needs and unmet needs (e.g., research, drug discovery, diagnostics, clinical, patient health), and analytical strategies that demonstrate impact.

Who Should Attend:

Directors, Managers, Researchers, and Scientists from Pharma, Biotech, Academia, Government and Healthcare Organizations working in Research, R&D Informatics, Translational Genomics, Informative Technology, Predictive Medicine, Biostatistics, Statistics, Computational Biology, Statistical Modeling, Advanced Data Mining & Machine Learning Methods, Biomarker Discovery, Bioinformatics, Algorithm Development, and Data Analysis.
