Call for Papers - Single-cell technologies

Guest Editor:
David Casero:
 Research Institute at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, USA
Baohua Wang: School of Life Sciences, Nantong University, China

Submission Status: Open   |   Submission Deadline: 31 July 2023

BMC Genomics, BMC Medical Genomics, and BMC Bioinformatics are calling for submissions to our Collection on Single-cell technologies. Recent years have seen rapid progress in the development of single-cell sequencing technologies. They can provide valuable insights into complex biological systems as well as allow researchers to make new discoveries. These powerful methods are used, for example, to generate high resolution transcriptomes, identify complex and rare cell populations, discover regulatory relationships between genes and assess cellular heterogeneity.

David Casero: Research Institute at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, USA

Dr. Casero is an Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine and the Director of Translational Multi-omics in the Inflammatory Bowel & Immunobiology Research Institute at Cedars Sinai Medical Center (Los Angeles, California). Dr. Casero earn his B.A. in Physics and Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics at Complutense University (Spain). He joined UCLA as a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Matteo Pellegrini, where he conducted work on computational biology with a focus on gene regulatory pathways in hematopoiesis, immunity, and inflammation. His work relies on methodologies for the analysis of multi-dimensional sequencing-based databases and comprises both basic studies on mouse and human stem and progenitor cells, along with translational studies for biomarker discovery in inflammatory diseases. Dr. Casero has served in the Editorial Board of BMC Bioinformatics since 2019.

Baohua Wang: School of Life Sciences, Nantong University, China

Dr. Wang is a Professor in the School of Life Sciences at Nantong University. He got his Ph.D. from Nanjing Agricultural University, and worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the University of Georgia for three years. Currently, he serves as Editorial Board Member for two journals, namely BMC Genomics & Frontiers in Plant Science. As the project leader, he undertook more than 10 scientific research projects including a National Key R & D Project, and published more than 60 relevant academic papers. His research interests focus on molecular genetics, epigenetics, quantitative genetics especially in germplasm enhancement and improvement of crop plants.

This collection welcomes articles presenting novel bioinformatics analysis tools and applications for single cell RNA-Seq data as well as research looking into the potential applications and future directions of single-cell omics sequencing technologies. 

We would like to encourage submissions from all aspects of single-cell omics, from a single-cell diagnostic and tracking of human and animal diseases to an evolutionary guided-perspective of single cell tracking through different stages of development and/or species.

The scope of this cross journal collection between BMC Genomics, BMC Bioinformatics and BMC Medical Genomics encompasses all realms of life, from prokaryotes to eukaryotes.

Submission Guidelines

Back to top

This Collection welcomes submission of Research Articles. Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have read the submission guidelines of the journal you are submitting to. Articles for this Collection should be submitted via our submission system, SNAPP, on BMC GenomicsBMC Medical Genomics and BMC Bioinformatics. During the submission process you will be asked whether you are submitting to a Collection, please select "Single-cell technologies" from the dropdown menu.

Articles will undergo the standard peer-review process of the journal they are considered in BMC Genomics, BMC Medical Genomics and BMC Bioinformatics and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. Articles will be added to the Collection as they are published.

The Guest Editors have no competing interests with the submissions which they handle through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Guest Editors have competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.
