CALL FOR PAPERS
Journal of Combinatorial Optimization
Special Issue on
Computational Molecular Biology
Guest Editors: Ying Xu, Satoru Miyano, Tom Head.
Submission Deadline: August 15, 1998.
The past ten years have witnessed the rapid development of a new
computational molecular biology. Combinatorial optimization and
have played a significant role in advancing this new discipline. The
partnership between mathematics, in particular combinatorial
algorithms, and molecular biology has greatly enriched both fields,
to new ways of thinking and greater challenges to meet.
The scope of this Special Issue includes all aspects of combinatorial
optimization and algorithms in computational molecular biology. Original
papers are solicited that describe research on combinatorial methods for
problems arising from the following areas (nonexhaustive) of molecular
-- DNA sequencing
-- DNA mapping
-- recognition of genes and regulatory elements
-- RNA/protein structure prediction
-- molecular evolution
-- combinatorial libraries and drug design
-- bio-sequence analysis and comparison
-- computing with biomolecules.
Six hard copies of each submitted manuscript should be sent to one of
guest editors by August 15, 1998. Manuscripts must be prepared according
the normal submission requirements of the Journal of Combinatorial
(see <http://www.wkap.nl/journalhome.htm/1382-6905>). Each manuscript
refereed by at least three anonymous reviewers. Notification of
be sent to the authors before November 30, 1998. The Special Issue is
to be published by mid-1999.
