Brown University Advances Genomics, Big Data Research

A $1.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health allow a computer science team from Brown University to better an algorithm used to detect mutated genes. It is thought that this algorithm could potentially be used to sift out irrelevant information in non-genomics big datasets. Read more…

DNA to Carry New Data Burden

Harvard scientists from the Wyss Institute have taken a significant step forward, encrypting 700 terabytes of data such that a single gram of DNA would carry almost a zettabyte of information, defeating the previous DNA information density record by a factor of a thousand. Read more…
