In 2021, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has mobilized an unprecedent response from researchers, leading to the successful development of innovative vaccines with record speed. However, the COVID response has also contributed to a rapid growth in the volume and complexity of data now available to life scientists – and at a time when advances in machine learning enhance our ability to transform these data into actionable insight. Thus, many scientists believe that research practices are undergoing a phase shift, driven by increased adoption of the emerging methods and tools of data science – of which, data visualization is a cornerstone.

To help facilitate this phase shift, Frontiers has initiated a series of focused Research Topics, spanning a broad range of scientific fields. As part of this initiative, the Research Topic on ‘Insights in Bioinformatics Data Visualization – 2021’ will solicit brief, timely contributions from prominent researchers, describing how recent developments in data visualization address current and future challenges in bioinformatics.

In this fast-moving, interdisciplinary field, this special Research Topic aims to provide a comprehensive snapshot capturing the current diversity of approaches and thinking, with the goal of inspiring, informing, and guiding the next generation of researchers in bioinformatics data visualization.

Preferred article types: Brief Research Report, Mini Review, Opinion, Perspective. 


Keywords: bioinformatics, data visualization, insights, visual analytics

Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
