Wir laden Sie herzlich zu einem sehr spannenden Vortrag von Herrn Ingo Leusing von der Generali Versicherung im Rahmen unseres ScaDS-Kolloquiums ein.

Vortragstitel: Das Data Lake als Rückgrat der Digitalisierung bei der Generali. Blick hinter die Kulissen einer großen Versicherung durch die Darstellung von spannenden Big Data Use-Cases.

We are happy to invite you to an upcoming talk by Dr. Matthieu Schapranow from the HPI Potsdam within the ScaDS colloquium.

Title: Analyze Genomes - A Federated In-Memory Database Computing Platform Enabling Real‐Time Analysis of Big Medical Data

Speaker: Dr. Matthieu Schapranow

Location: ScaDS-Offices in Leipzig, Ritterstrasse 9-13, 14:30h

Abstract:

In an increasing number of cases, medical experts discover roots of complex dis-eases, such as cancer, within the human genome. Therefore, analyses of the individual genetic code of each patient are the foundation of the precision medicine approach. However, the acquisition of the genetic profile is very time-consuming, e.g. due to the high number of required process steps, the sheer amount of data, and the use of individual data formats.

Together with experts from life sciences, such as medical experts, biologists, and geneticists, researcher of the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) have developed the cloud platform „Analyze Genomes“ (http://we.analyzegenomes.com/).

It builds upon latest in-memory technology to enable new perspectives for precision medicine in the clinical routine. The platform enables a completely new way of working. Medical experts and researchers are no longer slowed down by long-running data processing steps. Instead they can test and verify their hypotheses in real time. Through the integration and combination with worldwide sources of medical knowledge manual and time-consuming searches in the Internet are omitted. As a result, precise treatment decisions can be made always on the basis of the latest available, worldwide medical knowledge for the patient’s sake.

ScaDS at Postersession BBZ/IDIV - December 2nd, 2016

Today ScaDS was invited to a cross-institute postersession in the Leipzig Bio City. We were presenting ScaDS, the Golden-Genome and Peak-Calling. We had some interesting discussions with groups from IDIV-Halle, Leipzig and the BBZ and are looking forward to several opportunities for followup and collaboration.
