Analysis of big data provides a wealth of useful information
Bioinformatic analysis is now a crucial aspect of medical research. The advances in whole genome sequencing and single cell analyses have generated huge amounts of data that can be used in a multitude of ways including the analysis of genetic variants, the identification of markers of disease and the identification of new cell types.
Mathematical modelling of disease and pathogen profiling are increasingly utilised in the fight to predict and prevent epidemic diseases.
Advances in the area of biophysical immunology has allowed the visualisation of T cell receptor synapses at the molecular level.
