UCI-CCBS: Big Data Image Processing & Analysis Workshop Course–UC Irvine (please share)

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

UC Irvine’s Center for Complex Biological Systems is pleased to announce the annual short course in Big Data Image Processing & Analysis (BigDIPA), September 17-21, 2018.

This 1-week workshop course is geared towards graduate students, postdocs, faculty and industry professionals with research interests in navigating, manipulating and extracting information from “Big Data” image sources. The course is designed to cover the complete “vertical integration” of the image data to knowledge pipeline.

The course will provide a mix of strategies for dealing with biological/biomedical big data image sources, using examples of image analyses drawn from advanced cell fluorescence microscopy techniques and neurobiology to highlight fundamental concepts and skills. Processing and analysis techniques will be generalizable and relevant to other model systems and biomedical input data sources.

Points from the new University Science Strategy Committee Report :

Under Five Ideas for Top-Priority Investment: (University-wide Institute for) Integrative Data Science and its Mathematical Foundations and Neuroscience, from Molecules to Mind

Under Five Additional Priority Ideas: Computer Science, Conquering Cancer, Precision Medicine, Regenerative Medicine

QT:{{”
Mark Gerstein — a professor of biomedical informatics— similarly emphasized the value of a new data science institute that would integrate Yale’s science campuses and discourage research “silos.” …
Another concern is establishing the specific role of the institute amid the various departments and programs at Yale that perform data science research, Gerstein said. For example, he said, Yale’s new Center for Biomedical Data Science, which Gerstein co-directs, might eventually be folded into the proposed institute.

Yale establishes biomedical data science center

“The field of data science has become particularly relevant in the biomedical realm — in genomic sequencing, imaging data, patient record data, data on molecules like nucleotides, proteins and metabolites and wearable personal health devices,” Gerstein said. “All of these create data streams that are growing particularly large, and there’s a lot of value in mining and integrating these different data streams.” …

“Although this initiative was started by the medical school, it is meant for the whole campus,” Gerstein said. “We want undergraduates to do research and take courses in biomedical data science — and to be engaged in this center.”

Center co-director Mark B. Gerstein, Ph.D., the Albert L. Williams Professor of Biomedical Informatics, explains that succeeding with what researchers term “Big Data” requires “real thought about standards, the uniform collection of data, the distribution of samples, and the presentation and packaging of results.” After three years of planning, Gerstein and co-director Hongyu Zhao, Ph.D., a geneticist and the Ira V. Hiscock Professor of Biostatistics, have assembled a kind of central clearinghouse for research and development of these issues, particularly cloud computing and privacy, as well as for education and bridge-building collaboration on university, national, and international levels. “Our mission is really about connecting and coordinating the people and resources already here, and becoming a way to recruit the scientists we want to attract in the future for the Big Data initiatives we want to participate in,” says Gerstein. “We expect the center to have a very broad impact.” “}}
