But with big data comes a big question: How do we transform unstructured data into actionable knowledge? In the case of biomedical research, the key problem is to integrate the large pile of highly heterogenous data and use it for personalized therapies and drug development. Graph databases are an ideal way to represent biomedical knowledge and offer the necessary flexibility to keep up with scientific progress. A well-designed data model and Cypher queries can deliver in seconds what previously took days of manual analysis.
