Plant Bioinformatics welcomes cutting-edge research applying computational tools to investigate the vast quantity of data produced by ever-expanding "omics technologies", from single genes to complex systems.
Papers discussing new or improved algorithms, software, and online resources are particularly encouraged.Read More
Next-generation sequencing and ever-expanding "omics" technologies have resulted in the generation of vast quantities of data on plant genomes, proteomes, transcriptomes, and more. Plant Bioinformatics applies computational tools to draw meaning from these huge datasets.
As the bioinformatics field grows rapidly Plant Bioinformatics will be at the forefront of publishing research across the breadth of the discipline, from opinions and hypothesis through to original research, new software designs, and new methods that will advance the field with a specific focus for plant scientists. The discipline spans levels of investigation from single genes to complex systems.
Reports may be as brief and concise as necessary to accurately describe new analytical tools and approaches.
Plant Bioinformatics particularly encourages the submission of papers that discuss new or improved algorithms, software, and online resources. Articles of interest include but are not limited to:
Please consider the requirements for experimental studies as listed below:
Quantitative analysis needs to be performed on a minimum number of 3 biological replicates in order to enable an assessment of significance and ensure depth of the analysis. This includes quantitative omics studies as well as phenotypic measurements, quantitative assays, and qPCR expression analysis. Studies that do not comply with these replication requirements will not be considered for review.
Studies falling in the categories below will also not be considered for review, unless they are extended to provide meaningful insights into gene/protein function and/or the biology of the subject described.:
Indexed in: PubMed, PubMed Central (PMC), Scopus, Web of Science Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), Google Scholar, DOAJ, CrossRef, AGRICOLA
Plant Bioinformatics welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Plant Bioinformatics, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
