Laboratory for Large-Scale Biomedical Data Technology
Genomic data management technologies connecting to new biological findings
Today, life scientists must glean valuable information from published work and databases in order to further their own scientific work, for the benefit of society. To achieve this they must collect and annotate this additional information individually. Therefore, they are required to perform additional data management tasks as part of their research tasks; this is costly in both time and financially. This is especially true for scientists working heavily with genomics data. Our mission is to develop technologies for achieving efficient genomics data management in the following ways:
- Research and development of the element technologies of systems that can manage large-scale genomics data in accurate, efficient and scalable manners.
- Construction of reference data sets to compare various large-scale genomics data with a view to future directions and requirements.
Along with these developments, we set up computational infrastructure that is adequate to meet these aims and demands. These activities are conducted to address the ever increasing, large amount of next generation sequencing data; that is produced both within and outside of this division. The ultimate goal is to contribute to further applied
research areas including, but not limited to, drug discovery and medical practices.
