In the current Information age, further progress of Medical Sciences requires successful integration with Computational and Information Sciences. This minitrack provides a number of innovative ways of how such integration can be achieved via translational research. Translational research is aimed to connect basic science and clinical research. In the medical domain, basic research focuses on the development of analytical and experimental methods to better understand physical, chemical and biological processes on the molecular, cellular, tissue and organism levels. Clinical research focuses primarily on the improvement of patient care and clinical outcomes. The papers of this minitrack provide a diverse spectrum of how Bioinformatics tools can help to effectively transfer new knowledge from bench to the clinic and from clinic back to the bench.
