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

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.

    Impresionante el trabajo presentado, impresionante su repercusión e impresionante la humildad de Eduardo y de Pablo; y deprimente la actitud necia que se vislumbra hacia este tipo de proyectos por parte de este País. Lo normal en estos casos... y así nos va.
    En este grupo creo que sólo podré participar como oyente. Mi nivel en las materias es de Infantil, pero estoy deseando que se convoque una nueva cita.
    Como sugerencia, otras salas en Madrid, como Ciball o mejor, el espacio Camon creo que animarían a más gente a asistir, puesto que están más céntricos, aunque, siendo egoístas, estos encuentros en "familia" se disfrutan mucho más.
    Un saludo para todos.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
