Finding Cures for Cancer with Big Data Genomic Analysis

Presented by

Dr. Fritz Schinkel, Head of Fujitsu's Big Data Competence Center

About this talk

The German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) uses self-service big data analytics to radically improve the genomic research process. Their new insights have allowed them to identify better treatment plans for cancer patients. During this one-hour on-demand webinar, Dr. Fritz Schinkel, head of Fujitsu’s Big Data Competence Center and a Fujitsu Distinguished Engineer, discusses how the combined Datameer and Fujitsu platform helps the DKFZ: --Perform deeper analysis on raw datasets representing millions of genomic positions without requiring data reduction techniques that can compromise results --Dramatically reduce the time it takes to analyze raw genomic datasets for each patient to speed creating patient treatments
