Recent technological advances and high-throughput automated measurements have led to new challenges for biomedical data storage and mining. Computer-based approaches have therefore become essential to help researchers and clinicians extract new insights from these “big”, “small” or “smart» data. How to avoid the garbage-in / garbage-out syndrome? and turn punctual information into contextualised knowledge?
