National and Transnational Implications of Big Data in the Life Sciences

The report describes the results from a year-long evaluation of the drivers of Big Data in the life sciences, possible risks and benefits, and existing or needed solutions to address the risks identified. To assist with the evaluation, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Center for Science, Technology, and Security Policy (CSTSP) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation WMD Directorate Biological Countermeasures Unit involved a working group of experts in computer science, data science, life science, biological security, data security, cyber security, law enforcement, and homeland security from U.S. government agencies, intergovernmental organizations, academia, private industry, and the amateur science community.
