    Although not credited on the page itself, I believe Dr. Zaher Nahle posts about big data in ME/CFS research.

    Thanks for posting the link, @AndyPR

    I wish they'd make some changes to the Solve ME/CFS website (solvecfs.org).

    For example, why does this article on big data have no date? (or am I missing it? I tried to look for one)

    Big data and the various 'omics fields: genomics, metabolomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, is hugely promising. However I hope that one group (or several groups in close collaboration) can get funding to do these studies on us. Ideally under the umbrella of a research initiative which included or was cognizant of other parts (such as stage of illness, severity, epidemiological concerns etc) *cough* open data-sharing.

    Otherwise I think there could be disparate conclusions depending on sample size, laboratory procedures, definition used. In short I think it's hugely promising if done right. :rocket:
