Presentation- Code-N: A Silicon Valley life sciences 'Big Data' start-up
Thursday, November 29, 2012
10:45 AM - 11:10 AM
A major challenge to developing 'faster cures' is that key information about compounds, proteins, genes, and diseases is spread over dozens of databases. The goal of the Open Pharmacological Space initiative is to integrate industry data sources via 'Concept Web' semantic technology to provide a data hub for researchers. Code-N's mission is to empower scientists to analyze all relevant data simultaneously 'in the cloud' to make compound-gene-protein-disease connections that are simply not feasible today. Code-N will highlight its first product, the Green Field Finder, and demonstrate how this new technology can help researchers find 'green fields' of opportunity to cure diseases faster.
