Track 7 - April 21 – 23, 2015

Data Visualization and Exploration Tools 

Genomics, Drug Discovery and Clinical Development

As pharma and biotech generate ever greater volumes of data, data visualization allows for deeper analysis and better informed decision-making from these big data sets. Track 7 will showcase how to design, implement and evaluate visualization techniques and tools in support of genomics and sequencing research, as well as in drug discovery and clinical development.
