Eagle Symposium: Bigger Than Data – Discover or Die?
Next Thursday, the 27th March, DNAdigest CEO, Fiona Nielsen, has been invited to speak at The 4th Annual Eagle Symposium. The symposium is an all day event presenting challenges and solutions to those in the bioinformatics community, particularly focussing on issues relevant to data sharing.
Fiona will be exploring why data sharing, the road map of future genetics, still encounters problems and how DNAdigest is overcoming these challenges to enable efficient data sharing leading to faster cures for genetic disease.
The talk, ‘Privacy-preserving Data Access and Improved Data Reuse for Human Genomics Research‘, is at 2:00 pm. You are still able to register for the symposium. If are unable to attend yourself do follow @eaglegen and @DNADigest for updates throughout the day.
It’s set to be a great event, with distinguished speakers including a keynote from Cameron Neylon, advocacy director of PLOS, on the role of open source and open thinking in research.
