Bioinformatics in the Era of Big Data

Bio{medical}informatics is a field that has emerged through the analysis of data primarily generated by other researchers. As such it is a leading indicator for what biomedical research will involve in the era of big data, taken here to imply large diverse datasets at different biological   scales - from molecules to populations. Does the model by which we have accessed such data thus far scale to the future? I will argue that the answer is no and new approaches are needed which would change how we do our science.
