Applying Big Data

The main aim of this project is to explore new innovative techniques to store, process, and analyze large volumes of data for phenotyping. Additionally, the project explores new ways of working, e.g., through hackathons. As the project is explorative, knowledge transfer is done through scientific publications, presentations at international conferences, and by organizing dedicated workshops for B4F partners.
