Speech Title: "Toward Privacy Preserving Biomedical Data Analysis"


Abstract: Bioinformatics is a research area where we analyze various biomedical data, but many of these data, especially the increasing individual genome data, contain highly sensitive data. When we publish even the simplest statistics of biomedical databases, we need to be very careful so that as little as possible (preferablly no) individual sensitive information leaks. Differential privacy is one of the most important measures to evaluate how safe the published data are from the viewpoint of privacy. In this talk, we will give several efficient differential private methods for publishing key fundamental statistics in genome association study.
