Advances and challenges in Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering: IWBBIO 2020

BMC Bioinformatics. 2023 Oct 18;24(Suppl 2):361. doi: 10.1186/s12859-023-05448-0.


This Supplement issue, presents five research articles which are distributed, mainly due to the subject they address, from the 8th International Work-Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (IWBBIO 2020), which was held on line, during September, 30th-2nd October, 2020. These contributions have been chosen because of their quality and the importance of their findings. Those contributions were then invited to participate in this supplement for the following journals of BMC: BMC Bioinformatics and BMC Genomics. In the present Editorial in BMC journal, we summarize the contributions that provide a clear overview of the thematic areas covered by the IWBBIO conference, ranging from theoretical/review aspects to real-world applications of bioinformatic and biomedical engineering.

Keywords: Biomedical engineering; Biomedicine; Computational systems for modelling biological processes; Healthcare and diseases; High performance in bioinformatics; Next generation sequencing and sequence analysis.
