On February 28-March 2, BGST conducted an international, multidisciplinary workshop on “Realizing the Value from Big Data” in Singapore. The workshop was jointly organized and hosted by the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) of Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology, and Research (A*STAR) at Fusionopolis. This workshop convened bioinformatics scientists and environmental scientists withcomputational/data scientists to assess and project the impact of complex datasets in their fields. The domain scientists worked together with the computational scientists to find common ground and to identify the computational and policy roadblocks that prevent their disciplines from fully extracting value from ”big data”.   The participants, many of whom brought extensive international experience, were drawn from research organizations in Australia, China, England, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Portugal, Singapore, and the United States.
