Bioinformatics, being one of the best field in terms of future prospect, lacks one thing – a news source. For there are a lot of journals publishing a large number of quality research on a variety of topics such as genome analysis, algorithms, sequence analysis etc., they merely get any notice in the popular press.
One reason behind this rather disturbing trend, is that there are very few people who can successfully read a research paper and make a news out of it. Plus, the bioinformatics community has not been yet introduced to research reporting. These factors are common to every relatively new (and rising) discipline such as bioinformatics.
Although there are a number of science reporting websites and portals, very few accept entries from their audience, which is expected to have expertise in some or the other field.
