UC-Santa Cruz Leading $3.5M Project To Use Big Data To Predict Cancer Outcomes
UC-Santa Cruz researchers are leading a $3.5 million project -- funded by the National Cancer Institute -- to use "big data" to predict cancer outcomes. UCSC researchers will build a new database for storing and analyzing interpretive information derived from raw genomic data stored in centralized repositories, including UCSC's Cancer Genomics Hub. Analyses conducted with help from the new database can reveal connections between tumor samples, according to researchers.
