Special Issue "Current Trends and Developments in Bioinformatics and Statistical Research from a Biomedical Aspect"
A special issue of BioMedInformatics (ISSN 2673-7426).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 July 2022.
In the past decade, the advancement of next-generation sequencing technologies has produced a large number of different types of omics data, such as genomics, transcriptomics, radiomics, metabolomics, epigenomics, etc. More systematic ways to collect and store health and disease information from patients can also accumulate tons of informatics. The characterization of diseases, as well as patients, has never been so detailed. For example, the development of radiomics can extract far more disease information that is not visible to doctors.
The information explosion in the biomedical area makes it possible to provide tailored treatment to each patient instead of treating them as an average, which is the core value of precision medicine. At the same time, it has brought many challenges in the mining, processing, integrating, and further modelling of large-scale data from different levels of patients.
In order for biomedical data to be manipulated appropriately, and for physicians and researchers to have a rule of thumb to follow, Biomedinformatics introduces this Special Issue. We encourage contributions to the development and applications of bioinformatics and statistical methods in the context of biomedicine. Original studies, as well as insightful reviews, are very welcome to be published under this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. BioMedInformatics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
