Guest Editors: Olga Vitek and Mark D. Robinson
Genome Biology is currently inviting submissions for our upcoming special issue on Benchmarking Studies.
Bioinformatics tools are essential for all kinds of genomic and post-genomic studies. As increasing numbers of methods are published in certain fields, it can be difficult to keep track of best practices for their use. Large scale studies that benchmark these methods on a wide range of datasets can be extremely useful to the scientific community. Genome Biology is issuing a call for papers reporting in-depth analyses of state-of-the-art computational tools on a wide range of datasets, with clear guidelines and recommendations given for the user.
The special issue will accept manuscripts presenting:
- in-depth analyses of advantages
-limitations of state-of-the-art methods
-demonstration on a variety of representative datasets and simulations
-clear guidelines/recommendations for the end-user
-insight into future directions for methods
Submission deadline: 18 May 2019
Please use the online submission system and indicate in your covering letter that you would like the manuscript to be considered for the ‘Benchmarking Studies’ special issue. If you would like to inquire about the suitability of a manuscript for consideration, please email a pre-submission inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The guest editors will have an advisory role to guide the scope of the issue and provide advice on commissioned content, but will not be involved in the editorial decision making on all papers submitted.
