Sequencing has seen major breakthroughs in recent years and has paved the way for developing novel life-science applications for the life sciences. Consequently, the life sciences are facing a rapidly increasing demand for data handling capacity. The workshop “ICT needs and challenges for Big Data in the Life Sciences” invited experts from different areas of the life sciences, bioinformatics and systems biology across Europe to discuss the topic. The aim was to identify and describe current and future ICT needs from sample analysis to model generation.
