In this paper we analyze topic evolution over time within bioinformatics to uncover the underlying dynamics of that field, focusing on the recent developments in the 2000s. We select 33 bioinformatics related conferences indexed in DBLP from 2000 to 2011. The major reason for choosing DBLP as the data source instead of PubMed is that DBLP retains most bioinformatics related conferences, and to study dynamics of the field, conference papers are more suitable than journal papers. We divide a… CONTINUE READING
