Visualization of a Scientific Community of Indian origin in the US : a case study of Bioinformatics and Genomics

By Aparna Basu and Grant Lewison


We look at the publication output of researchers of Indian origin, currently publishing from the USA in the area of Bioinformatics and Genomics and use the bibliographic details to construct a typology of this community. We find that there is a large output, almost an order of magnitude more than the output from India in the same set of specialized journals in this area. There are several highly productive authors who have contributed 15-20 papers annually. The papers are published in standard journals, including 10-20 papers annually in Nature and Science and 40 or more papers in PNAS and Bioinformatics. Inter community co-authorship links suggest that there are some intense links between individuals and well developed groups around the more active researchers
