Webinar: How Data Commons are Changing the Way that Large Biomedical Datasets are Analyzed and Shared

January 10, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

“Biomedical data has grown too large for most research groups to host and analyze the data from large projects themselves. Data commons provide an alternative by co-locating data, storage and computing resources with commonly used software services, applications and tools for analyzing, harmonizing and sharing data to create an interoperable resource for the research community. We give an overview of data commons and describe some lessons learned from the NCI Genomic Data Commons, the BloodPAC Data Commons and the Bionimbus Data Commons. We also give an overview of how an organization can start a process to set up a data commons themselves.”

Speaker: Robert L. Grossman, Frederick H. Rawson Professor of Medicine and Computer Science and the Jim and Karen Frank Director of the Center for Data Intensive Science at the University of Chicago
