Big Data Analyses in Evolutionary Biology

Event Start
Event End
Engineering Science Hall (building.9), Level 2, Lecture Hall 2

Recent advancements in evolutionary biology are greatly impacted by the production of massive "omics" data sets, such as genomes, transcriptomes, proteomes, and metabolomics that are now available for evolutionary studies. At the same time, the size and complexity of this data requires the Big Data paradigm and approach essential in its analysis. Moreover, comparative studies are crucial for evolutionary studies, which further leads to the need to develop state-of-the-art bioinformatics technologies that can underpin both research and technology.

On behalf of the Organizing and Program Committees, we would like to welcome all of the participants. As always, we look forward to a productive exchange of ideas and hope that you will enjoy your stay at KAUST and Saudi Arabia.
