Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Healthcare and bioinformatics focus on various health and biological data, aiming to curate information and knowledge for the sake of human being health. In the era of big data, a significant amount of data in the healthcare and bioinformatics field have been accumulated in a heterogeneous manner. For example, the healthcare field generates tons of clinical trail and EMR data, while bioinformatics brings in rich sequencing data. In addition, the literature and other text resources provide dozens of millions of text data. To tackle science discovery in healthcare and bioinformatics, information retrieval, data fusion, and data integration are effective means to explore and derive knowledge from heterogeneous data.

This Special Issue of Axioms, entitled “Bioinformatics and Data Set Analysis”, aims to focus on the latest research progress in data science for the sake of knowledge discovery in healthcare and bioinformatics, as well as advanced techniques in information retrieval, knowledge representation and reasoning, heterogeneous data fusion, and so on.

Moreover, this Special Issus is also collaborating with the China Conference on Health Information Processing (CHIP), the annual symposium of the Chinese Information Processing Society of China (CIPS) Technical Committee of Medical, Health and Biological Information Processing. Submissions not from CHIP are also welcomed.

Diabetes is an illness that happens with a high level of glucose in the body, and can harm the retina, causing permanent loss vision or diabetic retinopathy. The fundus oculi method comprises detecting the eyes to perform a pathology test. In this research, we implement a method to predict the progress of diabetic retinopathy. There is a research gap that exists for the detection of diabetic retinopathy progression employing deep learning models. Therefore, in this research, we introduce a recurrent CNN (R-CNN) model to detect upcoming visual field inspections to predict diabetic retinopathy progression. A benchmark dataset of 7000 eyes from healthy and diabetic retinopathy progress cases over the years are utilized in this research. Approximately 80% of ocular cases from the dataset is utilized for the training stage, 10% of cases are used for validation, and 10% are used for testing. Six successive visual field tests are used as input and the seventh test is compared with the output of the R-CNN. The precision of the R-CNN is compared with the regression model and the Hidden Markov (HMM) method. The average prediction precision of the R-CNN is considerably greater than both regression and HMM. In the pointwise classification, R-CNN depicts the least classification mean square error among the compared models in most of the tests. Also, R-CNN is found to be the minimum model affected by the deterioration of reliability and diabetic retinopathy severity. Correctly predicting a progressive visual field test with the R-CNN model can aid physicians in making decisions concerning diabetic retinopathy. Full article
