IMM Conference Big Data: Professor Mikael Huss

Multi-omics data integration - a case study at Scilifelab

One of the biggest challenges in life science research is to process and combine multi-faceted data sets generated with different technologies into a coherent picture. I will exemplify with some case studies involving several data producing facilities at SciLifeLab how we attempt to extract interesting knowledge using a ”multi-omics” approach.
