Collection: Hepatitis C

The 2020 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Harvey J. Alter, Michael Houghton and Charles M. Rice for their discovery of Hepatitis C virus. In celebration of what they started and showcasing areas of research that have since emerged, we here present a collection of articles from the BMC Biology, BMC Medicine, Genome Medicine and the BMC Series Journals on biology, diagnosis and treatment and wider public health and medical outcomes of the Hepatitis C virus and its infection.

The Editor of BMC Bioinformatics is delighted to announce a 6 month author opt in pilot in partnership with Code Ocean, to faciliate peer review of source code.

BMC Series Focus Issue

October: Animal Models

With World Animal Day falling on October 4th, the BMC series has decided to dedicate this month’s focus issue to animal models. Browse our titles for insight into recent research in the field, including growth regulation, lifespan variation,  nephrotoxicity,   cancer, lipid metabolism, autism, temperature-dependent development,  drug resistance, inflammatory responses,  disease resistance, sperm dynamics and antimicrobial residues in fish.

Thematic series: Machine learning for computational and systems biology

BMC Bioinformatics is pleased to announce papers included as part of the thematic series "Machine learning for computational and systems biology" are now being published.

Articles

Aims and scope

BMC Bioinformatics is an open access, peer-reviewed journal  that considers articles on all aspects of the development, testing and novel application of computational and statistical methods for the modeling and analysis of all kinds of biological data, as well as other areas of computational biology.

  • As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
