Many kinds of high-throughput experiments generate large data sets that require analysis by data science to produce summaries that can be further evaluated for potential biological significance. Some examples include genome sequencing, phylogenomics, genome-wide association studies, epigenetics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and many others. This interface between biology and data science is known as bioinformatics and it has been a very active area of research recently. Optimal bioinformatic analysis requires an in-depth understanding of statistics and well as the development of a robust analytic pipeline. Bioinformatic techniques were initially used for the evaluation of fungal model organisms but have more recently been employed in all areas of biology, including the study of pathogenic fungi. This Special Issue focusses on bioinformatics in pathogenic fungi. Manuscripts concerning generation of data, data analysis, evaluation of different analytic methods and novel analytic methods for pathogenic fungi are all invited. Both research articles and review articles are welcome. Manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Fungi, which has an Impact Factor of 5.724, are reviewed promptly.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Fungi is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
