Big data analytics is transforming biology and medicine by allowing researchers to extract more information and knowledge from rapidly growing diverse types of data. This India-EMBO Symposium focuses on the translational interface of big data with biomedicine at various scales ranging from microbes to societies. The meeting, other than summarizing the potential of such applications and practical challenges therein, will specifically discuss the different requirements and the need for calibrating big data analytics to the larger purpose of the "actionable information." A computational model for prioritizing drug candidates that will undergo further pre-clinical and clinical testing, vastly differs in terms of error tolerance, from the use of large datasets to form public health policy evidence. Specifically, the "actionability" of any insight would be guided by pragmatic concerns and ethics, which vary between applications. Thus, the emphasis will be to form a well reasoned articulation ...

Several RNA viruses constitute the majority of emerging and re-emerging pathogens, however, there is very little focus on research into the biology and pathogenesis of RNA viruses in India. Studies on epidemiology and disease burden, risk factors, the immune response to RNA viruses, circulating virus strains and virus evolution, animal models of disease, antivirals and vaccines are strikingly absent. Emerging RNA viruses such as Zika virus and Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus are a matter of grave concern to India. Therefore, this symposium will play a key role in bringing together national and international RNA virus experts from diverse areas on one platform to guide the future of RNA virus research in India. This symposium will provide impetus on laying a strong foundation for both the fundamental and translational aspects of RNA virus biology with a focus on epidemiology, immune response, virus evolution and vaccine trials. ...
