Abstract: This special issue on nanoinformatics for biomedicine is a collection of recent papers from the 2012 IEEE Workshop on Nanoinformatics for Biomedicine (NanoInfo 2012) and other work in the area. These papers illustrate different aspects of nanoinformatics to support biomedical research and to advance knowledge on nanomaterial–biological interactions. The topics covered include data curation, data standards, data mining and predictive modeling, machine learning, and translational research. The objectives of this special issue are multifold: (1) to bring together and showcase some of the latest research results in the field; (2) to introduce some useful repositories, systems, and analysis tools; and (3) to stimulate more research activities in the field.

Keywords: nanobiotechnology, nanoinformatics, data curation, data mining, machine learning, translational research
