Interdisciplinary Science Conference: Big Data and Computational Biology organised by Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Basic Sciences
Hosted by : Jamia Millia Islamia
Department : Computer Science and Engineering
Big data is a catching phrase characterized by large and complex collection of data with ever ranging demand of increasing computational power. The exponential increase in the volume, variety and veracity has the potential for making us understand and draw parallel conclusions at molecular level of the diseases. The use of big data comes with significant challenges. Despite many challenges the value of big data lies in the potential of gaining insight into the system in consideration. In order to formulate intelligent decisions and make biology a predictive science, we need to learn hidden information (i.e. patterns) which involves the development and application of analytical and theoretical methods from interdisciplinary sciences. Thus, this conference aims at giving a detailed look on several aspects (ideas) connected with collecting and analysing Big Data with Computational Biology. It will provide a common platform for Scientists, Engineers, Technocrats and Industrials belonging to different disciplines and sectors to discuss wide range of topics on big data and computational biology from fundamental to the technological and industrial applications. This is the continuation of the conferences on the interdisciplinary topics organized by the Centre in the past.
