Between May and August 2020, PLOS Computational Biology partnered with the Centre for Reproducible Biomedical Modelling to trial an expert technical peer review process designed to measure the level of reproducibility of participating studies.
Over 70 papers opted into the trial.This was a massive effort by the centre and our editorial board, and we will be announcing the findings from the pilot soon. Read more about the reproducibility pilot here.
This year, we continued to receive and publish the latest research and insights into living systems at all scales. Read some of our most-viewed publications from 2020.
- DeepWAS: Multivariate genotype-phenotype associations by directly integrating regulatory information using deep learning
- From whole-organ imaging to in-silico blood flow modeling: A new multi-scale network analysis for revisiting tissue functional anatomy
- Striated myocyte structural integrity: Automated analysis of sarcomeric z-discs
