Featured article: MIScnn: a framework for medical image segmentation with convolutional neural networks and deep learning

The increased availability and usage of modern medical imaging induced a strong need for automatic medical image segmentation. In this Software article, Müller & Kramer introduce the open-source Python library MIScnn. The framework enables researchers to rapidly set up a complete medical image segmentation pipeline by using just a few lines of code.

Featured article: COVID-19 lung CT image segmentation using deep learning methods: U-Net versus SegNet

Saood and Hatem investigate two structurally-different deep learning techniques, SegNet and U-NET, for semantically segmenting COVID-19 infected tissue regions in CT lung images. They propose that the computer-based techniques may prove as reliable detectors for infected tissue in lung CT scans.

Featured article: Universal adversarial attacks on deep neural networks for medical image classification

Hirano et al focus on three representative deep neural network-based medical image classification tasks and investigate their vulnerability to the seven model architectures of universal adversarial perturbations.

Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science. Hence, the BMC Series introduced Data notes, a short article type allowing you to describe your data and publish them to make your data easier to find, cite and share.

You can publish your data in BMC Genomic Data (genomic, transcriptomic and high-throughput genotype data) or in BMC Research Notes (data from across all natural and clinical sciences). 

More information about our unique article type can be found on the BMC Genomic Data and BMC Research Notes journal websites. 

BMC Series Focus Issues

July: Open data and data sharing

Data are the cornerstones to transparency and reproducibility of research. At the BMC Series, we offer different article types to help you share your data. Explore some of our open access data publications in this focus issue and browse through the additional reading and resources to learn more about this topic. 

June: Water and Sanitation.

In celebration of World Environment Day on the 5th June,  the BMC Series presents a focus issue on Water and Sanitation.  We have  collated open-access content from across our journals to highlight research into clean water, investigating links between water and health and our overall relationship with water.
