Big data in a pandemic world — how our data defies travel restrictions to go global
Wednesday 11th August, 18:00-19:30
Global gathering and sharing of data is crucial to track, understand and tackle the evolving threat of coronavirus. In the UK alone, vital new knowledge has grown out of data provided by many tens of thousands of people. With such vast pools of information, we’ll explore how co-operation, sharing and trust across communities and borders is key to making sense of it all.
Covid Connections are a series of free, virtual panel discussions, organised by Wellcome Connecting Science and COG-UK.
Based on COVID-19 and the role genomics science is playing in combatting the pandemic, at these events you will hear from the people who are making this happen. Panellists will be from across the COG-UK consortium.
