Big Data in Biomedicine conference opens this week

The Big Data in Biomedicine conference kicks off at Stanford this week. The event, which will be held at the School of Medicine’s Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge, is bringing together leading figures from academia, industry, government and philanthropic foundations to discuss the burgeoning opportunities for mining the vast amounts of biomedical data housed in public databases. Here’s a look at the schedule.

For those unable to attend the conference in person, the event will be webcasted via the Big Data in Biomedicine website. Throughout the three-day event, we’ll also be live tweeting the keynote talks from Anne Wojcicki, CEO and co-founder of personal-genetics company 23andMe, and David Ewing Duncan, author of Experimental Man, as well as other proceedings from the conference. You can follow the tweets on the @SUMedicine feed or by using the hashtag #bigdatamed.
