UC San Diego hiring 'big data' stars |

San Diego is quickly becoming the focal point of a nationwide effort to use high-speed computers and smart software to sift through mountains of biomedical data for clues about why people develop everything from cancer to Alzheimer’s disease.
In the past nine months, UC San Diego and the J. Craig Venter Institute in La Jolla recruited three of the country’s top “big data” researchers from Google, MIT and the University of Colorado. Two of the deals will cost the campus about $9 million.
“Computers are the new microscopes, and data is the new blood draw,” said Rajesh Gupta, chair of the department of computer science and engineering at UC San Diego.
