Data is central to any medical decision. Since the introduction of “omics” technologies, petabytes of biological data has been generated on a daily basis in labs around the world. The complexity involved in generating, mining and integrating this data forced its specialization into various subdomains – genomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, etc. However, significant challenges remain in linking this wealth of data to clinical applications in a scalable and robust way.
