We are at a unique point in time, where more data is being gathered and stored digitally than we can currently analyze. While most research aims at forming a thesis and then creating and analyzing all necessary data, there is a new breed of scientist (e.g. Atul Butte at Stanford) that uses publically available datasets to data mine interesting information. This is the most high-tech form of recycling and can yield amazing results. With a SQL database background and computational scripting skills combining divergent datasets seem particularly interesting. For example imagine the correlations between data from : genomic chips, sleep pattern recording device, GPS/heart rate fitness apps, and nutrition facts stored from a membership card.
