All data leads to Rome

According to an article published on iSGTW, last week iSGTW has been at the EUDAT Second Conference in Rome, Italy. EUDAT, which is funded under the European Commission's FP7 scheme, seeks to support a collaborative data infrastructure which will allow researchers to share data within and between communities and enable them to carry out their research effectively.

Richard Frackowiak and Ewan Birneywere among the speakers during plenary sessions at the event.

In addition to being director of clinical neuroscience at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, Frackowiak is also heavily involved in the Human Brain Project. Yesterday, he discussed the role of big data in making the dream of personalized medicine become a reality. You can read our exclusive interview with Frackowiak, in which he talks in depth about the human brain project, here: Big brains, big data, and big opportunities.

Birney, meanwhile, discussed the challenges of annotating the human genome. He is associate director of the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) and has played a key role in many large-scale genomics projects, including the sequencing of the human genome. Birney recently spoke to iSGTW about the transformation of biology into "a big-data science". You can read the full interview, in which Birney also discusses some innovative ideas for long-term data storage, here: Data in the DNA: transforming biology and data storage.
