Launched last month, the open-source journal publishes research on tools and algorithms used in the analysis of biological data. The peer-reviewed journal is led by an independent editorial board comprised of leading experts in various aspects of bioinformatics.

Godzik, who joined UCR in 2018, obtained his master’s and doctoral degrees in physics at the University of Warsaw in Poland. His interests evolved from computational physics to modeling and analysis of protein structures, later expanding to functional and phylogenetic analysis of proteins and their networks. More recently, he has focused on the analysis of immunity networks in diseases, especially cancer and autoimmune diseases. He has authored and co-authored more than 360 papers in peer-reviewed journals.
