Extended Abstracts Fall 2015: Biomedical Big Data; Statistics for Low Dose Radiation Research (Trends in Mathematics)

Extended Abstracts Fall 2015: Biomedical Big Data; Statistics for Low Dose Radiation Research (Trends in Mathematics) by Elizabeth A. Ainsbury
English | 9 May 2017 | ISBN: 331955638X | 144 Pages | EPUB | 1.6 MB

This two-part volume gathers extended conference abstracts corresponding to selected talks from the "Biostatnet workshop on Biomedical (Big) Data" and from the "DoReMi LD-RadStats: Workshop for statisticians interested in contributing to EU low dose radiation research", which were held at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM) in Barcelona from November 26th to 27th, 2015, and at the Institut de Salut Global ISGlobal (former CREAL) from October 26th to 28th, 2015, respectively. Most of the contributions are brief articles, presenting preliminary new results not yet published in regular research journals.

The first part is devoted to the challenges of analyzing so called "Biomedical Big Data", tremendous amounts of biomedical and health data that are generated every day due to the use of recent technological advances such as massive genomic sequencing, electronic health records or high-resolution medical imaging, among others. The analysis of this information poses significant challenges for researchers in the fields of biostatistics, bioinformatics, and signal processing. Furthermore, other relevant challenges in biostatistical research, not necessarily involving big data, are also discussed.
