Abstract Diagnosis and treatment methods based on big genomic data are becoming widespread as the cost of genome sequencing decreases gradually. In this context, disease-gene association studies are of great importance. The genomic data is very sensitive when compared to other data types and contains information about the individual and his / her relatives. Many ...

In an increasingly connected world, managing and using the growing amount of data is a major challenge for our society. Today, from health care to transport, social networks, commerce and industry, all aspects of our lives are put into data. But how can we manage this infinite and constantly growing mass of information? This is ... Read more about "micro18"

Genomic knowledge is about to profoundly change medicine, by making it more precise and personal. At the crossroad between basic science and the clinical world, my research group’s ambition is to contribute to this exciting transformation. We use genomic and bioinformatic approaches to identify and characterize genome variants that can explain the inter-individual differences observed ...

We consider transmission over a cloud radio access network (CRAN) focusing on the framework of oblivious processing at the relay nodes (radio units), i.e., the relays are not cognizant of the users' codebooks. This approach is motivated by future wireless communications (5G and beyond) and the theoretical results connect to a variety of different information ...

Abstract The introduction of computational resources at the network edge allows us to offload computation from clients and/or servers, thereby reducing response latency, backbone bandwidth, and computational requirements on clients. More fundamentally, edge-computing moves us from a Client-Server model to a Client-Edge-Server model. While this is an attractive paradigm for many applications, it raises the ...
