Creating Actionable Knowledge From Passive Data
Large scale healthcare data analysis is a budding area of research currently nurturing a bunch of cross-disciplinary enterprises poised to change the daily course of everybody's life. A cornucopia of biomedical applications born in the wake of the postgenomic revolution recently became a driver for long-awaited implementation of the holistic vision of human health and wellbeing. Data-enabled science (“BigData”) borrows its insights from the adjacent fertile fields of genomics, proteomics and metagenomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics, systems biology and bioinformatics. Now it is about time to see postgenomic ideas come to fruition through an acceleration of drug discovery and its time to market, providing means for staving off diseases by watchful maintenance of health and, last but not least, charting the path for healthy aging and personalized medicine.
Yelena Yesha is a Distinguished University Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
