NOSQL for bioinformatics: Bio4j, a real world use case using Neo4j (Madrid, Spain)

NOSQL for bioinformatics: Bio4j, a real world use case using Neo4j

Monday, January 30, 2012, 7:00 PM

From the meeting notice:

The world of data is changing. Big Data and NOSQL are bringing new ways of looking at and understanding your data. Prominent in the trend is Neo4j, a graph database that elevates relationships to first-class citizens, uniquely offering a way to model and query highly connected data.

This opens a whole new world of possibilities for a wide range of fields, and bioinformatics is no exception. Quite the opposite, this paradigm provides bioinformaticians with a powerful and intuitive framework for dealing with biological data which by nature is incredibly interconnected.

We’ll give a quick overview of the NOSQL world today, introducing then Neo4j in particular. Afterwards we’ll move to real use cases focusing in Bio4j project.

I would really love to see this presentation, particularly the Bio4j part.

But, I won’t be in Madrid this coming Monday.

If you are, don’t miss this presentation! Take good notes and blog about it. The rest of us would appreciate it!
