It can take several months for doctors to find the cause of each patient’s cancer. In five years’ time, this could take less than a day using big data analytics.

Researchers at the Oregon Health and Science University’s Knight Cancer Institute are looking at how a patient’s DNA can be used to create a treatment plan, targeting the root of the disease in their body.

They are digging deep into data on the genetic causes of cancer, and analysing data across hospitals.
