Next-generation sequencing technologies are revolutionising genomics and their effects are becoming increasingly widespread. Many tools and algorithms relevant to next-generation sequencing applications have been published in Bioinformatics, and so to celebrate this contribution we have gathered these together in this 'Bioinformatics for Next Generation Sequencing' virtual issue. This will be a living resource that we will continually update to include the very latest papers in this area to help researchers keep abreast of the latest developments.
