To be precise, Gartner talks about to possibility of biology to change our life or even “redefining life” entirely ! And it’s not the future, it’s tomorrow ! The possibilities are amazing, of course, and we will probably extend vastly our lifetime. But a question remains : who will control it? anyone or everyone?…

Seoul sets standards for VR and AR medical devices – Korea Biomedical Review

We are probably going to see more and more AR and VR parts in future medical devices and it’s interesting to see that a innovative country like Korea works on adapted guidelines. The main goal is to help companies to develop such a tools. The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) published a guideline Monday, which includes the definition and classification standards for approving products that apply virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR)…

From Virtual Reality to Immersive Analytics in Bioinformatics Burlingame, California, 30 Jan 2018

Molecular biology produces huge amounts of data in the post-genomic era. This includes data describing metabolic mechanisms and pathways, structural genomic organization, patterns of regulatory regions; proteomics, transcriptomics, and metabolomics. On the one hand, analysis of this data uses essentially the methods and concepts of computer science; on the other hand, the range of biological tasks solved by researchers determines the range and scope of the data. Integrative Bioinformatics is a new area of research…
