Dr Anna Barker - Arizona State University, Tempe, USA

Dr Barker talks to ecancertv at NCRI 2015 about her work looking at cancer as a complex system.

She explains the importance of integrating molecular level information with a three dimensional understanding of the disease.

The genome, she says, is "digital information, no different from a computer program" and we have never had such a grasp on genomic sequencing.

Dr Barker describes this as a "data tsunami" and explains how the creation of models based on a complex systems understanding is the practical application of this information.
