"Big Data Analytics: Introduction & Challenges in Agriculture & Healthcare"
Organized By
Biotech Park, Lucknow
Sponsored By
Department of Biotechnology Govt. of India

About the Biotech Park, Lucknow
The Biotech Park, Lucknow, located in the city of Nawabs, decorates Lucknow with a futuristic State-of-the-art facility for biotechnology-led enterprises. It is the only functional biotechnology park in North India, serving the State of Uttar Pradesh to bring biotechnology as a way of cultivating crops, living a healthy life and enriching skills for boosting the biotech industry. The Park was set up jointly by the Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India and Department of Science & Technology, Govt. of Uttar Pradesh. In a short time, it has fulfilled not only the dreams the country had in 2002 when Lucknow was declared as “Biotechnology City”, but has also enabled the State to provide a platform for the “Make in India” mission.

About the workshop
The advances of genomics, sequencing, and high throughput technologies have led to the creation of large volumes of diverse datasets of significance in Systems & functional biology. Recent advances in Bioinformatics have proved to be especially helpful in analyzing these big datasets that lead to better Understanding of the disease. Big Data refers to the collection of data sets whose scale, diversity and Complexities require new architecture, techniques, algorithms and analysis to manage it. Big Data in the Context of agriculture refers to new means of collecting and analyzing data generated from the farm to the end consumer. Big Data Analytics in agriculture applications provide a new insight to give advance weather decisions, improve yield productivity and avoid unnecessary cost related to harvesting, use of pesticide and fertilizers. Big Data in health informatics can be used to predict outcome of diseases development and epidemics, improve treatment and quality of life, and prevent premature deaths. It is very useful not only in clinical medicine for diagnosis/detection but also in epidemiological research as the Big Data will provide huge amount of data. Big Data has a great potential changing the agriculture and healthcare outlook such as in crop management, improved yield, patients personalized care and their safety management, treatment efficiency, improvement in clinical outcomes and drug discovery. This workshop would be based on various bioinformatics tools and databases that are used in Big Data Analytics, An introduction to Next Generation Sequencing, Phylogentic Analysis, Molecular Modeling, Computer-aided Drug Designing.
