Big Data in Biology - Big data has been the key player in data mining and analytics. Large amount of data is shared and dumped on the internet everyday. Our body can be considered as a big mine of data that is being explored since years. In this presentation we will be viewing recent discoveries and implementations of big data in biology. We will see the amount of data a single genome of a single protein produces and how it is very useful to study and find cure and preventions for many diseases and viruses. We will also be looking at different sectors of biology and the data produced in each of the sectors and the significance of big data in studying this data. We will also be looking at potential technologies that can be engineered using big data analytics tools and data mining to predict, track and cure diseases. We will also take a look at how big data influenced synthetic biology.
