Discovery in Millions of Genomes
This year will likely see the millionth whole human genome getting sequenced. However, we have yet to figure out how to mine this vast amount of data efficiently. This talk outlines three key elements for data-mining millions of: co-locating computation and data, bringing algorithms to data, and innovative data structures.
