Algorithms: computer programs that sort big data to find trends and unique points within the data, detailed ideas that implement pieces of software, or components of a piece of software
Biocomputation: The science of taking genetic information from thousands of patients and designing algorithms to sort and find common genes associated with certain pathologies
Bio-marker: A gene associated with a strong development of a disease. If detected early in a patient could lead to better medical outcomes. Biocomputation aims to finding such bio-markers.
Computerized Tomography: A process that uses generated X-rays to produce virtual slices of the image being taken.
Bronchoscopy: A medical procedure which a device is inserted through either the nose or mouth down the trachea to procure a sample of lung tissue.
Microarrays: A large-scale lab experiment utilizing up to thousands of samples to generate big data to be later sorted by sophisticated algorithms
