Nov 30: Join KeyGene & GENALICE Seminar on Solutions for Agrigenomic Big Data Challenges

Event date: 30/11/2017

Genalice and KeyGene invite you for an inspiring seminar entitled:

Generate, Process, and Apply. Solutions for Agrigenomic big data challenges

The Agri & Food industry has to solve the big data challenges brought by the next generation sequencing revolution. More data is better as it provides more insights for better breeding strategies. The enormous amount of generated data however has to be processed and applied in such a way that it creates added value rather than headaches over heavy, lengthy and costly computing time. This symposium, organized by KeyGene and GENALICE, will focus on the genomic big data challenges i.e. processing and application, by highlighting techniques and solutions. Cases from industry are included.

After the seminar you will know more about how to process and apply big data in a faster, better and easier way. You will have more clarity on how the continuously growing flow of big data can add value for your business. You are most welcome to attend this FREE seminar which will be held at KeyGene in Wageningen, the Netherlands. Joining online is possible.

Already confirmed speakers:
Hans van Leeuwen, Bayer Crop Science
Bas Tolhuis, GENALICE
Antoine Jansen, KeyGene
Björn Usadel, Aachen University, Institute for Biology

Date: November 30, 2017
Time: 1 – 5.30 pm
Place: KeyGene, Wageningen or online

Eventbrite - KeyGene & GENALICE: Solutions for Agrigenomic Big Data Challenges

Genomics is a Big Data science and is going to get much bigger, very soon. It is estimated that genomics is a “four-headed beast”—it is either on par with or the most demanding of the domains i.e. Astronomy, Twitter & Youtube in terms of data acquisition, storage, distribution, and analysis.
