Frontiers in Bioinformatics publishes research on tools and algorithms used in the analysis of biological data. It is an open source, rigorously peer-reviewed journal led by an independent editorial board that consists of the group of world’s leading experts in various aspects of bioinformatics. We aim to be at the forefront of communicating cutting-edge research to researchers, academics, clinicians, policy makers and the public.
As biology is increasingly becoming a data driven science, analysis and interpretation of biological data becomes a critical aspect of every project. Specialized tools to perform such analysis have to combine biological insights with computer science, mathematics and statistics and their development and applications became known as bioinformatics. Frontiers in Bioinformatics aims at becoming a forum where new discoveries in all aspects of bioinformatics could be presented. We want to especially focus on new bioinformatics tools and novel applications that can bring new insights to specific biological problems, efforts that cross standard field boundaries and bring approaches that were never before applied to biological data. We want to help to explore the frontiers in bioinformatics.
Frontiers in Bioinformatics currently covers the areas of research in the specialty sections outlined below in alphabetical order, additional sections will be continuously added and we welcome submissions that may not fit into any currently existing sections as well as suggestions to create new specialty sections. All specialty sections publish original research, reviews, opinions and commentaries. This comprises the full spectrum of computational tools specific to the analysis of biological data.

Frontiers in Bioinformatics complements our sister journal Frontiers in Genetics. This journal makes use of the unique Frontiers platform for Open-Access publishing and research networking for scientists, enabling an equal opportunity to seek, share and create knowledge. Research Topics are particularly well suited to introduce new developments and directions in all aspects of bioinformatics.
Short Name: Front. Bioinform.
Electronic ISSN: Coming Soon
Indexed in: Coming Soon
Frontiers in Bioinformatics is composed of the following Specialty Sections:
The specialty sections of Frontiers in Bioinformatics welcome submission of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Case Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
When submitting a manuscript to Frontiers in Bioinformatics, authors must submit the material directly to one of the specialty sections. Manuscripts are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the respective specialty section.
