on the pressing needs of the global society.
from a "single scientist - single project" model to collective innovation.
• Identifying, inspiring and supporting new modes of business and innovation
• Providing a leading voice and coordinating framework for collective innovation in data-enabled science for the life sciences community.
• Promoting sustainable and shared access to data, knowledge, tools, and services
Big Data/Big World/Big Ideas will be held in partnership with Seattle Children's Research Institute and the Washington Global Health Alliance (WGHA). We hope this event will lead to new insights, collaborations and research opportunities between our two communities.
Lots of changes at DELSA!

Biological processes are fundamentally driven by complex interactions of biomolecules. Integrated high throughput omics studies enable multifaceted views of cells, organisms, or their communities. To ensure transparency and to maximize reproducibility of life sciences studies, we provide a simple omics metadata checklist utilizing the rich ontologies already in use by the community. This checklist will guide experimental design, capture important parameters and facilitate data publications and sharing. Information collected through this checklist will enable data harmonization, comparative meta-analysis and integrated research.
Citizens are awakening to the immense power their own personal health data have; the power to answer questions that have been asked since humans were capable of wondering (why am I tall, why are you short?) and questions that are only beginning to be asked (how does my DNA influence my height?).
Congratulations to Michael Levitt on his Nobel Prize win!
