@eaglegen tweet: "If you see this sign you are the right place! #egsym14 Bigger than Data- Discover or Die?"
Organised for a fourth consecutive year our fourth symposium: Bigger than Data - Discover or Die? was held on Thursday on 27th March at the Babraham Research Campus. Our symposium was well attended and we are over the moon that we had 100% positive feedback from the surveyed delegates, who stated the quality of the talks was really good.
During the day we had eight high profile speakers from different backgrounds sharing diverse expertise in the efficient management of the "data deluge". The day finished at the Eagle Pub in Cambridge where delegates and speakers continued discussing the techniques shared during the day. Everybody left with new insight ideas into different techniqes that can be applie to achieve their bioinformatics research goals.
There is another blog which gives a summary of the each of the talks.
