In September, PLoS Computational Biology begins a series entitled “Developing Computational Biology” about the pursuit of scientific endeavors in computational biology around the world. Each country has unique features in areas from educational programs, types of research being undertaken and the ways that research is funded. The series starts with a perspective on computational biology in Mexico, followed by contributions about Brazil, Cuba, Argentina, China, and South Africa.
