Have you published a pre-print or paper in the field of Bioinformatics between July 1 - Dec 31, 2017?
Then we welcome you to showcase your work to peers globally in the final instalment of the Bioinformatics Peer Prize for 2017! The objective is to accelerate wider knowledge exchange & drive multi-disciplinary collaboration with the latest bioinformatics research from around the world, while celebrating the most exciting new discoveries made in the field as voted by peers. Our previous open prizes have helped cultivate tens of thousands to better learn, share & collaborate with the latest research from the Bioinformatics community.
The Bioinformatics Peer Prize
This prize is global, researchers from any country can apply. However, you must have published a paper in the broad field of bioinformatics between July 1st - December 31st 2017 (either an BioarXiv pre-print or e-publication from any journal).
How to Apply?
Simply share a wider/non-jargon summary about your research paper, its implications & add a DOI or BioArxiv link so anyone can access your paper to learn more. Co-authors are eligible to apply on behalf of a team, but must seek approval from co-authors first.
You have the option to upload a summary video about the research, which has been shown to attract higher audience engagement, use & citations with your work. If you would like to create a video, check out our guide for hints or watch the hundreds of other research videos in other Thinkable competitions.
