The bioinformatics and computational genomics special issue aims to promote the application of new and/or existing computational methods to the high throughput data to unravel biological and biomedical findings.
High-throughput bio-analytical technologies such as DNA sequencing and micro-arrays have revolutionized biomedical research. Computational and biostatistical methods, in particular the field of data mining had an important impact too. As wealth of data is constantly generated from bioanalytical assays, appropriate methods, algorithms, software and applications have been widely used to derive in-silico results that should be confirmed by biological interpretation. This special issue therefore intends to highlight the interesting, novel and sound results that are successfully generated by the application of data mining to the biomedical data. While the scope of manuscripts can be very large in biomedical genomics research, translational research is of particular area of interest.
As this issue is multi-disciplinary, it accepts different types of articles including but not limited to review, research article, software, application, methods and algorithms.
