Learn how Julia, a high-performance programming language, can be used to analyze genomic data. Discussion of libraries, specific challenges and opportunities, past examples, and future possibilities of using Julia in genomic data analysis.
Genomic data is becoming an increasingly valuable resource in the study of biology and medicine, as it allows for a deeper understanding of the underlying mechanisms of diseases and the development of more effective therapies. However, the sheer volume and complexity of genomic data can make it challenging to analyze. Julia, a high-performance programming language, has emerged as a powerful tool for genomic data analysis. In this talk, we will explore the use of Julia for genomic data analysis, including the various libraries and packages available, such as IntervalTrees and GenomicFeatures. We will also discuss some of the specific challenges and opportunities that arise when analyzing genomic data, such as dealing with large-scale data and integrating multiple data types. We will also show some examples of how Julia has been used in the past to analyze genomic data and what the future holds for this field. This talk will be beneficial for biologists, bioinformaticians, and data scientists interested in the application of Julia to genomic data analysis.
