Research at the Big Data Institute (BDI) focuses on the analysis of complex data to understand the causes, prevention and treatment of disease. It aims to develop, evaluate and deploy efficient methods of analysing information for large clinical research studies in order to identify the associations between lifestyle exposures, genetic variants, infections and health outcomes around the world. Areas of research include genomics; population health; infectious disease surveillance; and methodology such as informatics, statistics, and engineering. The BDI's work spans traditional departmental boundaries and scientific disciplines and is supported by technical resources capable of handling vast quantities of data.
