Bioinformatics, bugs and big data.

Richard Emes, Advanced Data Analysis Centre (ADAC), University of Nottingham

Abstract: Generation and analysis of large, complex data underpins modern biological research, often driving discovery. The successful interpretation of these data is essential to their appropriate and comprehensive use. Recent advances and reducing costs mean that “next generation” sequencing is now the method of choice to investigate biological systems. I will describe recent research using sequencing technologies to understand pathogen biology.
