Data and Metadata Management

With the increased demand in computing power from life science researchers and scientists tackling big data issues, storage and infrastructure must be able to scale to handle billions of data points and files efficiently. The problem is administration of data to ensure information can be integrated, accessed, shared, linked, analyzed, and maintained to best effect across the organization. The Data and Metadata Management track will explore how to manage workflows with data and metadata without rerunning everything, but with the ability to handle data updates and new versions of the software. We will also explore how to associate the processed data and features with the raw data for analysis purposes.
