PeerJ Sections


PeerJ, the journal, is now divided into separate Sections by field.

Section Editors have oversight of their section to ensure the journal maintains a fair peer review process and the highest standards of scientific practice in their fields.

Within each Section, the Academic Editors regularly identify and highlight the most important new PeerJ publications in their field. Learn more & Meet the Section Editors.


Robust adaptive PD-like control of lower limb rehabilitation robot based on human movement data
Qichun Zhang –– This paper presents a robust adaptive PD controller for robotics systems which are used for lower limb rehabilitation. The topic is insurable combining the multi-diciplinary research materials including the control system design, rehabilitation engineering, robotics systems and human-robotic interaction. The human bio-signals have been involved into the design to enhance the performance of the system and the framework would generate impacts on many mentioned aspects.
Characterization of the GRAS gene family reveals their contribution to the high adaptability of wheat
Alexander Bolshoy –– GRAS gene family is very important in plants. This study promotes research in the field.
Knee replacement outcome predicted by physiotherapists: a prospective cohort study
Mike Climstein –– Applicability to a wide range of practitioners, with cross-discipline implications.
Identification of the hub gene BUB1B in hepatocellular carcinoma via bioinformatic analysis and in vitro experiments
Minjun Chen –– This study combinedly use in vitro experiments and bioinformatics analysis to identify several genes effect on HCC cancer in terms of prognosis.
Application and evaluation of knowledge graph embeddings in biomedical data
Othman Soufan –– This paper highlights different graph embedding methods and evaluation metrics to infer novel gene-disease interactions. Another valuable study in the domain of graph mining for biomedical applications.
