Dear Colleagues:

I and Prof. Albert Zomaya have served as Editors-in-Chief for the Wiley
Book Series on Bioinformatics for over one year. So far, the book series 
has been very successful. The first book was published a few months ago, 
and eight books are either in press or in the planning stage.
Please take a look at book series web page for more information:


If you are interested in editing or authoring a book related to bioinformatics, please

Wiley Book Series on
Bioinformatics: Computational Techniques and Engineering


Research and development in bioinformatics and computational biology 
require the cooperation of specialists from the fields of biology, 
computer science, mathematics, statistics, physics, and such related 
sciences. It is the comprehensive application of mathematics (e.g., 
probability and graph theory), statistics, science (e.g., biochemistry), 
and computer science (e.g., computer algorithms and machine learning) to 
the understanding of living systems. Bioinformatics is fast emerging as an 
important discipline for academic research and industrial application. The 
large size of biological data sets, inherent complexity of biological 
problems and the ability to deal with error-prone data all result in 
special requirements such as large memory space and huge computation time. 
These challenges require computer scientists to rethink our traditional 
methods and algorithms and to adapt to the new research area. The 
objective of this book series is therefore to provide timely treatments of 
the different aspects of bioinformatics spanning theory, new and 
established techniques, enabling technologies and tools, and application 


This series emphasizes the algorithmic, mathematical, statistical and 
computational methods that are central in bioinformatics and computational 
biology. Although the possible set of book topics is large, the following 
areas are particularly suitable for our book series (but not exhaustive):

Bioinformatic databases
Biomedical image processing (segmentation, registration, fusion)
Bio-ontology and data mining
Computational genomics
Computational intelligence in bioinformatics
Data visualisation
DNA assembly, clustering, and mapping
Drug design
Gene expression and microarrays
Gene identification and annotation
Machine learning methods in bioinformatics
Molecular evolution and phylogeny
Molecular modeling and simulation
Protein, RNA and DNA sequence analysis
Parallel computing in bioinformatics
Phylogeny reconstruction algorithms
Protein and RNA structure prediction
Sequence assembly, sequence search and alignment
System biology
