Happy New Year!

Let's begin 2020 with a run-down of our Top Ten most viewed* Behind the Paper posts of 2019, including contributions on virtual histology and electronic medicine. 

  1. Alex Zhavoronkov takes the top spot with his post explaining how AI can help identify new molecular candidates for drug development

  2. A post describing the first ever “DNA Search Engine” is our no.2, contributed by Kiana Aran.  

  3. In at no.3, David Rank’s post describes an improved method for analysing genomic sequences.    

  4. In our fourth most viewed Behind the Paper of 2019, Henrik Nielsen discusses SignalP 5.0, the latest version of a bioinformatic tool used to predict signal peptides from amino acids.

  5. Virtual-based histological staining is the topic of our fifth most viewed post, contributed by Aydogan Ozcan

  6. Shaun Patel’s Behind the Paper from September is just outside the top five. He writes about advancements in precision electronic medicine for understanding the brain.  

  7. A post by Leon Anavy on DNA-based data storage is our seventh most viewed Behind the Paper of 2019. 

  8. In at no.8, Justin O’Grady shares the story behind a new method for diagnosing bacteria lower respiratory infection based on metagenomics. 

  9. Chunxiao Song and his post about an improved method for detecting epigenetic changes in the mammalian genome is our ninth most viewed BTP.
