Title of the webinar: BigData, Biotechnology, and the Future
Short description:
Ricardo Godinez will speak about Big Data and biotechnology, describing some of the main challenges and opportunities in biotechnology, which are derived from our recently acquired ability to decode massive amounts of genomic information as well as the challenges and solutions involved in analyzing, transferring, assembling, and visualizing genomic information. He will also talk about how DNA is being considered as an alternative format for to storing massive amounts of information, and how the analysis of genomic information can be transformed into "living information" that impacts food, medicine, and life.
