In response to the spectacular opportunities and immense challenges presented by the dawning era of Big Data in biomedical research, the NIH has developed the Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative. The mission of BD2K is to enable the biomedical research community to use the various types of Big Data for research. To address the growing need for skilled researchers to fully utilize biomedical Big Data, a series of BD2K FOAs have been designed 1) to develop a sufficient cadre of researchers skilled in the science of Big Data and 2) to elevate general competencies in data usage and analysis across the biomedical research workforce.
