"With new sequencing centers in Europe and the United States, BGI hopes its growing clout will help deliver the benefits promised by genomics—and revenue to pay off a mounting debt."

At a scale only China could do.

Oh, my.

"Genomic epidemiologists say, it's time to use the technique to track microbial movements on a global scale. By routinely sequencing bacterial samples—perhaps up to a billion a year—scientists could pinpoint the sources of new outbreaks faster, determine whether a bug is resistant to antibiotics, and investigate how public policies or the use of certain drugs change the course of microbial evolution."

One part of my job is talking to "pharmaco"epidemiologist who take claims data and electronic health records and mine them for outcomes and drug safety and effectiveness. [Plug] Our product can take huge amounts of data and query it at blazingly fast speeds.

For sure, if we have some large pathogen vigilance data stream being added to a large data warehouse (ours), researchers can query and analyze the data and predict outbreaks before they happen.

"The purpose of this overview is three-fold: 1) introduce biomedical cloud computing, 2) provide a concrete methodology detailing how projects are developed on the cloud, and 3) demonstrate cloud computing costs. We assume the reader has a basic understanding of UNIX."

"The Knight Foundation noted in a blog post announcing the 16 winners that data and the use of it for journalism was a big theme among this year’s contestants. When the Knight competition first started five years ago, the idea of a “hacker/journalist” who developed applications and journalistic tools around data was unfamiliar one, but the foundation noted that this is now an established position at some media outlets."

This is just great. This year is certainly turning out to be the year of Big Data coming on the scene - folks are finding all sorts of angles and insights in their own areas. This article lists a bunch in journalism.

"R is a widely used statistical software environment, and this should facilitate real-time statistical analysis of the rich amount of publication data available in Mendeley"

When I think of find-navigate-recombine-publish in science, this is the kind of thing I'm looking for. Now that I'm at a Big Data firm, everything looks like a nail. :-)

"I've pulled out from Baum's comments a range of timely ideas that help bring some perspective to the rapidly evolving and often-intersecting areas of data warehousing, purpose-built appliances, business analytics, Big Data, and how companies are trying to leverage all of that to turn insight into foresight."

"Scientists are struggling to make sense of the expanding scientific literature. Corie Lok asks whether computational tools can do the hard work for them."

Yeah. Info-swim.
