Precision medicine offers novel and promising ways to identify and treat a wide range of diseases. The future success of these therapies will be underpinned by novel bioinformatics approaches to evaluate and predict drug-patient interactions. Embedding predictability and personalisation into drug regimen design has the potential to significantly improve patients’ experiences of therapy, while also reducing the cost of treatment for healthcare services.
Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of bioinformatics and precision medicine, this virtual special issue invites researchers from across medical, biological, computer, and social sciences to submit primary research, review, and meta-analysis articles focusing on cutting-edge research in the development, use, and implementation of these technologies.

Virtual Special Issue (VSI) is a collection of papers centered around a specific topic, led by an expert (Guest Editor) in the field. Virtual Special Issues are an important component of our journal and cover current hot topics within the scope of the journal.
All papers belonging to a Virtual Special Issue will be gathered together on a single webpage. They are published in the regular issues of the journal as soon as publishable, and labeled as belonging to the Virtual Special Issue. A link from each paper will take you to the Virtual Special Issue website.
Submissions to Virtual Special Issues will undergo the same rigorous peer-review process as regular papers submitted to the journal.
