A new era for biomedical research Thanks to the fast progress in sequencing technologies, the cost of molecular profiling has plummeted over the last decade, making a colossal amount of biological data available for research. Since the first sequencing of the human genome inContinue Reading
Computer models for generation and use of scientific understanding Mathematical and numerical models are increasingly important for our understanding and prediction of complex interactive processes. Consider, for example, our climate system. Current understanding of the physical processes underlying air movement, heat exchange, and evaporation-condensation ofContinue Reading
Our abilities to collect, store and analyse scientific data have sky-rocketed in the past decades, but at the same time, a disconnect between data scientists, domain experts and data providers has begun to emerge. Data scientists are developing more and more powerful algorithms for dataContinue Reading
Paired with the emerging concept of Open Science, what influence does the digital paradigm have on the sharing of academic research results? What about scientific research’s concepts of reproducibility and reusability? Quick overview and focus on the current situation of Data Science.   A highlyContinue Reading
