Abstract: Since Francis Crick introduced his pioneer concepts in the 50’s that molecular biologists like myself have been striving in the lab to unravel the principles and mechanisms underlying biological information. Recently, however, major breakthroughs in technology – namely ‘Next Generation Sequencing’ – have turned biology into a data intensive science, highly reliant on demanding computational approaches.
In this DI-Smalltalk I will provide an overview on these topics and current challenges. By the end, I expect the audience to have gained some insight into this brave new world, full of opportunities to apply their expert knowledge, hopefully paving the way for interdisciplinary collaborations.
