    ADMIN | 2017-01-12 10:43:05.0

    We would like to announce the first batch of the distinguished Genomics, Proteomics and Bioinformatics (GPB) editorial board members selected from all members sitting on the GPB editorial board during 2013−2015.

    We value greatly the active involvements of the board members for journal operation and improvement. In total 9 members including three associate editors in chief and six general board members have been elected as the first batch of Distinguished GPB Editorial Board Members based on their contributions including but not limited to submitting or inviting quality manuscripts, organizing special issues, handling manuscript review or serving as reviewers, as well as participating in conference organization and journal promotion.

    The distinguished GPB editorial board member program is supported by the Project for Enhancing International Impact of China STM Journals (PIIJ) of China.

     Congratulations to the distinguished editorial board members!

    blob.pngDr. Vladimir Bajic is the Director of Computational Bioscience Research Center (CBRC) and Professor at King Abdullah University of Science       nd Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia. His primary interest is in facilitating biological discoveries using bioinformatics systems combined with data modeling and machine learning. Dr. Bajic’s current research covers development of bioinformatics tools & resources, knowledge-, text-, and   data-mining, disease diagnostic biomarkers and drug repurposing, NGS data, and metagenomics analysis. Dr. Bajic has served as the GPB editorial board member since 2012, and the associate editor-in-chief since 2015. Dr. Bajic was involved in organizing special issue Metagenomics of Marine Environments in 2015 with two publications from his lab included. This special issue was selected as one of the distinguished GPB special issues (20032015).

    blob.png Dr. Xiangdong Fang is the Professor of CAS Key Laboratory of Genome Science and Information, Beijing Institute of Genomics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China. Dr. Fang’s current research interest is focused on the epigenetic regulation of eukaryotic genes, especially the delineation of the molecular mechanisms of genetic diseases and carcinomas using various omics techniques based on different high-throughput sequencing platforms. Dr. Fang has served as the GPB editorial board member since 2009, and associate editor-in-chief since 2010. He was involved in organizing special issues Gene Regulatory Networks (including two articles from his lab) in 2013 and Translational Omics  (including one article from his lab) in 2014 and published one GPB paper in 2015. Translational Omics special issue was selected as one of the distinguished GPB special issues (20032015).

    blob.pngDr. Andreas Keller is the Professor in the Chair for Clinical Bioinformatics at Saarland University in Germany. His current research interests include discovery and validation of multiplex biomarker signatures, genetic tests for improved therapy selection for multi-drug resistant bacteria, and complex systems biology approaches. Due to the highly translational character of the Chair, Dr. Keller aims to foster a closer interaction between computational biology and clinical care by working closely with different companies to bring the research from bench to bedside. Dr. Keller has served as the GPB editorial board member since 2013, and associate editor-in-chief since 2015. He was involved in organizing special issue Translational Omics in 2014, and published one GPB paper in 2015. This special issue was selected as one of the distinguished GPB special issues (20032015).

    blob.pngDr. Jingfa Xiao is the Professor of BIG Data Center, Beijing Institute of Genomics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China. His current main research interests include (1) integrating public personal omics data domestically and internationally to build precision reference genomes and genetic variation map for different populations; associating omics data with clinical data with the goal to develop knowledge network for precision medicine; and (2) establishing the prokaryotic microbial genome annotation and data analysis platform; analyzing pathogenic mechanisms and host-microbe interactions for pathogenic bacterium from pangenomic insights. Dr. Xiao has served as the GPB editorial board member since 2012, and has published one GPB paper in 2014 and 2015, respectively.
