11. TWINCORE Symposium “Infection research meets big data“

29. August 2019

“Infection research meets big data“

Translational infection research does not only deploy classical molecular and cellular methods to investigate
patient samples and model systems, but also involves innovative “omics” technologies for the analysis of Patient cohorts. Such studies reveal enormous amounts of data about the pathogen and the host that are impossible to be overseen by conventional means. Therefore, to retrieve new knowledge, big data processing approaches have to be implemented, including machine learning and artificial intelligence. At the 11th TWINCORE Symposium, international and local experts from the fields of infection research, bioinformatics and data sciences will convene to discuss the current situation as well as future challenges and opportunities.
