  title={Special Issue on Biomedical Big Data: Understanding, Learning and Applications},
  author={Jun Zhu and An-An Liu and Mei Chen and Tolga Tasdizen and Hang Su},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Big Data},
The papers in this special issue focus on biomedical Big Data. Biomedical imaging is an essential component in various fields of biomedical research and clinical practice. The study of biologists requires continuous monitoring of cell behavior under microscope. Neuroscientists detect regional metabolic brain activity from positron emission tomography (PET), functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and magnetic resonance spectrum imaging (MRSI) scans. During these researching process, large…
