Enabling big data for microbiology in the food sector

In the last of a four-part series about bioinformatics, I’ll be taking a look at the food industry and discussing the role micro-organisms play and how we must control their presence in the production chain. Micro-organisms are found virtually everywhere in the environment; in the air, soil and water, in the intestines and faeces of […]

Unlocking the data secrets hidden in life sciences

In the third of a four-part series about bioinformatics, I’ll be discussing the role microbiology plays in life sciences, and how technology can assist you with processing and analysing such vast datasets. The life sciences are becoming a big data enterprise as advances in genomics, imaging and other technologies enable biologists to generate new information […]

Overcoming the data challenge posed by DNA sequencing

In the second of a four-part series about bioinformatics, I’ll be discussing how DNA sequencing is affecting storage infrastructures, and provide insight into how you can share this information to collaborate more effectively with your colleagues and peers. When Applied Biosystems introduced the AB370A in 1986, it signalled the beginning of a revolution in genomics. […]

Saving lives, alleviating climate impact, and improving product safety – the importance of computational fluid dynamics

Sounds impressive doesn’t it? Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is the analysis of systems involving fluid flow, heat transfer and associated phenomena such as chemical reactions, by means of computer-based simulation. We’ve been working with a number of customers to supercharge their CFD modelling so here’s the first of three blogs looking at the benefits and […]

Can technology innovations keep pace with research?

In the first of a four-part series about bioinformatics, I’ll be discussing the challenges posed by growing volumes of research information, and how technology can help you leverage the power that’s hidden in your data. I read with interest an article published in The FASEB Journal, which states: “It took Gerry M. Rubin one year […]
