In the past decade, an unprecedented wealth of omics data has been produced by next-generation sequencing technologies and advanced Artificial Intelligence methods. The characterization and quantification of human diseases at the molecular level has never been so detailed. Omics data, such as epigenomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics, and genomics, bring a remarkable opportunity for scientists to understand the disease mechanism in a comprehensive way. The challenges coming along with the data explosion are data management, data mining, data integration, data analysis, and data interpretation.
Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary subject of biology and computer science dealing with the above challenges. Numerous bioinformatics tools have been developed to promote the integration of omics data with traditional clinical data. The application of bioinformatics in the medical field has deepened the functional understanding of human disease mechanisms, improved the accuracy of human disease diagnosis and prognosis, and led to the discovery of novel drug targets. The contribution of bioinformatics to the medical field 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.
The goal of this Special Issue of Life is for omics data to be manipulated appropriately, and for physicians and researchers to have a rule of thumb to follow. We encourage contributions to the development and applications of bioinformatics and statistical methods in the context of human diseases. Original studies, as well as insightful reviews, are very welcome to be published 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Life 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 2600 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.
