Bioinformatics, HPC and AI : Convergence, Perspectives and the Future for Biomedical Applications
TimeWednesday, 17 November 20213:30pm - 5pm CST
DescriptionThere is little question that genomics, driven by the explosive growth of next generation sequencing and concurrent adoption of HPC to process the vast amounts of new data, has dominated bioinformatics for the past decade. Technology innovations and emerging applications such as in single-cell sequencing continue to extend genomics as the standard bearer for bioinformatics in biomedical applications. Even so, new technologies and data continue to emerge in other areas including proteomics, imaging and metabolomics, and data at different scales offer key insights into the complex biomedical systems of interest, demonstrating the true breadth of bioinformatics. The panel brings together experts with a variety of perspectives on bioinformatics, HPC and AI to explore the convergence of these fields and implications for realizing the potential of this convergence, and the implication for future applications across biomedicine from lab to clinic, for improved diagnostics, novel treatments and ultimately improved patient outcomes.
