Abstract:

Bioinformatics, the computer-based study of information and relations in biological systems, has emerged from rather simple tasks to visualizing, analyzing, classifying and simulating complex dynamic networks of hundreds or even thousands of biological entities. With the exponential growth of data provided by ever-faster experimental high-throughput techniques, bioinformatics aims at providing and developing novel computational toolsets to cope with these data. Such ‘information explosions’ are not only present in life sciences; the growth of data produced in our daily life, which is mostly due to digitalized ways of communication and information exchange, behaves similarly. With respect to digital forensics, analyzing these large amounts of data and identifying significant pieces of information have become of great importance in current crime investigations. As a major starting point in our research, bioinformatics and digital forensics share a common aspect: looking for a needle in a haystack. As a matter of fact, bioinformatics approaches can be adapted to be of great help in finding evidence and missing links in confiscated data – a process that is still conducted manually in investigations to this date. In this talk, analogies and links between bioinformatics and digital forensics are elaborated.
