Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Over the last few years, computational predictions and identifications have become important methods in modern life science and medical science. Many efforts have been made in developing algorithms and computational models to identify molecular structures, functions, interactions, evolutions, and their relationships with complex disorders. To validate these methods, many benchmarking datasets have been constructed, applied, and released to the public domain. The benchmarking datasets are the basis of fair comparison and validation of computational methods. A thorough discussion and comparison of the datasets is necessary. In this Special Issue, we aim at providing deep insights into the construction procedures and the characters of different benchmarking datasets for the same or similar biological topics.
We expect manuscripts that can discuss different benchmarking datasets for a single bioinformatics topic or in a specific category of topics. The manuscripts can discuss and compare the constructions procedures, data sources, statistics of different datasets, as well as computational methods that are developed and evaluated on the datasets. There is no limit or fixed boundary of these comparisons. All kinds of discussions, comments, and comparisons are welcome. Particularly, a collection of different datasets for a single topic or similar topics are welcome, as this will facilitate further developments of computational methods. In general, all contributions regarding bioinformatics benchmarking datasets can be included in 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. Data is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 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.
