Seeking nominations for annual review of translational bioinformatics 2016

Once again, I am preparing an annual review of progress in translational bioinformatics, and am seeking nominations for exciting papers published between January 2015 and the present. The talk will be on March 21 in San Francisco as part of https://www.amia.org/jointsummits2016

This talk is now in its 9th year and I hope is a useful way to highlight great work in our field.

To remind you, I am looking for papers that relate clinical entities (patients, diseases, drugs, symptoms, signs, populations) to molecular entities (genes, molecules, RNA, proteins) using informatics technologies. Self-nominations are welcome, and nominations of the papers of others are even better.

You can send me the paper, the citation, PMID, or whatever. If you want to tell me why you nominate a paper, great, but you don\\\'t have to--I will read the papers and try to form an opinion. The previous talks are available at: https://rbaltman.wordpress.com

Thanks so much for your help. I try to acknowledge all contributors in the the talk (let me know if you prefer to be anonymous). Please forward this message to colleagues who may have thoughts.

Nominate great papers by junior scientists who may not get the recognition they deserve!
