Big Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence: 7 Design Principles to Empower Life Science Researchers

Life sciences research is increasingly relying on big data analytics to drive scientific discovery. One of the contributing factors to this trend is the fact that researchers are confronted with a rapidly growing body of scientific literature and databases required to interpret experimental outcomes.

Reproducibility in Computational Biology

Recently Baker and Lithgow (Baker, 2016; Lithgow, et al., 2017) highlighted the problem of the reproducibility in research. Reproducibility criticality affects to different extent a large portion of the science fields (Baker, 2016). Bioinformatics is becoming a key element of many biological/medical studies (Searls, 2010) and reproducibility is also an important issue in this field (Kanwal, et al., 2017; Sandve, et al., 2013).

Digital pathology and bioinformatics: two sides of the same story

The last decade saw an impressive uptake of digital pathology technologies fueled by technological and methodological developments in whole slide image acquisition, processing and analysis. Besides the continuous improvements in scanner technology – coupled with decreasing storage prices – the development of machine learning methods led to a new generation of algorithms for image segmentation and interpretation.
