New BD2K grants fund software development

The research community funded by the National Institutes of Health's Big Data-to-Knowledge (BD2K) initiative has grown with the award of 15 NIH grants to researchers developing software tools for biomedical Big Data applications.

The awards, totaling $6.8 million in this fiscal year, are part of the Targeted Software Development program within the BD2K initiative. According to a release by NIH, the grants "represent innovative and collaborative approaches to common challenges across several areas of biomedical data use."

The areas of research are data compression, data provenance, data visualization and data wrangling.
