A benchmarking suite to analyze well-known next generation sequencing tools, mapping short reads to a reference genome, with respect to various technological and algorithmic perspectives and addressing issues using multiple approaches such as multiple simulators.
Employing Gaussian mixture models for intensity-based copy number variation array data performed on all family members simultaneously provides advance towards better quality CNV calls and should lead to more powerful family-based CNV association tests.
The first ‘how to’ guide for applying User-Centred Design (UCD) to websites for bioinformatics involves biomedical researchers rather than developers to design better web experiences, for example The Enzyme Portal
HS-Forest performs rapid, but incomplete, clustering for decoy selection in protein structure prediction, generating multiple independent trees for a consensus result by means of local sensitive hashing.

News from the web
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.
It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.
