The era of Big Data and precision medicine has revolutionized many industries, including healthcare, life sciences, higher education, and insurance. Empowered by better access to information, today’s patients are taking charge of their healthcare experience. They expect medical decisions and products to be tailored to their specific needs, so that they can live full and healthy lives. The combination of patient involvement and Big Data analysis boosts innovation, through faster drug, therapy, diagnostic test, and device-development. To fulfill these expectations, a “connected health network” must be established. CancerLinQ™ is a giant leap towards the creation of such a network, organizing the explosion of information into usable knowledge, personalized for each and every patient.

Learn how developments in genomics are transforming our knowledge and treatment of conditions such as diabetes. There have been huge advances in the field of genetics in the last 10 years since the sequencing of the first human genome in 2003. It is now possible to analyse all 20,000 human genes in a single experiment, rather than focussing on one gene at a time. We are in the genomics era.

Ce cours explique comment l’informatique contribue à l’analyse de l’information génétique. Il introduit conjointement les notions de génomique et d’algorithmique impliquées. Dans ce cours, nous verrons comment l’informatique permet d’interpréter le texte des génomes. Doté d’algorithmes adaptés, mis en œuvre sous forme de programmes efficaces, l’ordinateur produit des prédictions quant à la localisation des milliers de gènes d’un organisme vivant et les fonctions que remplissent les protéines qu’ils codent.
