Bioinformatics Meets User-Centred Design: A Perspective

I’m really happy to announce that our latest article on user experience in bioinformatics has just been published in peer-reviewed open access journal, PLoS Computational Biology.

The citation is PLoS Comput Biol 8(7): e1002554. doi:10.1371/journal.pcbi.1002554

Thanks to everyone involved – especially to Katrina, who carried out the interviews with myself and Paula, and put a lot of the manuscript together.  We hope this article is just the start of a trend towards more user experience-related articles in bioinformatics and in the wider life sciences community.  I feel that the lessons learned could also apply in other complex domains, such as engineering, technology and physical sciences.

For PLoS journals you can post comments on the article.  I look forward to hearing what you think, enjoy!
