The Power of Graphs to Analyze Biological Data
This talk will illustrate the power and flexibility of Graph Databases to help in the overall analysis of biological data sets. Davy will show how to build a visual exploration environment that helps researchers at identifying clusters within various biological data sets, including gene expression and mutation prevalence data. Additionally, he will demo BRAIN (Bio Relations and Intelligence Network), a powerful data exploration platform that combines various scientific data sources (including Pubmed, Swissprot and Drugbank). It uses a graph database under the cover to both store and enable powerful querying capabilities that provide key insights and deductions.
