CALL FOR PAPERS

Announcing a new quarterly peer-reviewed journal

COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY

Editors:

Daniel B. Davison, Ph.D.	David T. Kingsbury, Ph.D.
University of Houston		Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine

Thomas Marr, Ph.D.		Michael S. Waterman, Ph.D.
Cold Spring Harbor Labs		University of Southern California


Goals: First, to provide a forum for communication of scientific and
technical issues  associated with the analysis and management of 
biological information at the molecular level.  COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY 
will accept papers on the computational, mathematical, and statistical 
aspects of molecular biology.  This includes sequence comparisons, 
analysis and searching; DNA and protein sequence determination; DNA 
topological structure; protein structure; RNA secondary and tertiary 
structure; genetic mapping; physical mapping; molecular evolution 
including phylogenetic reconstructions; parallel methods of 
computation; design and implementation of biological databases; 
biological expert system design and use; application of artificial 
intelligence methods to biological systems.

Second, to provide a forum for the exchange of problems and methods 
between and within the biological and the mathematical/computational 
communities.  This will be accomplished by soliciting mini-reviews 
in diverse areas, and by providing a forum for the informal exchange 
of theories and experimental approaches.

The growth of molecular biology has produced large amounts of complex 
data consequently creating challenging new problems in the analysis, 
interpretation, and handling of these data.  The mounting volume 
and richness of data require multidisciplinary and quantitative 
approaches for analysis and interpretation.
