                  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
discipline, computational molecular biology. Combinatorial optimization
and algorithms have played a significant role in advancing this new
discipline. The partnership between mathematics, in particular
combinatorial optimization and algorithms, and molecular biology has
greatly enriched both fields, leading 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
biology:

           -- 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
the
guest editors by August 15, 1998. Manuscripts must be prepared according

to the normal submission requirements of the Journal of Combinatorial
Optimization (see <http://www.wkap.nl/journalhome.htm/1382-6905>). Each
manuscript will be refereed by at least three anonymous reviewers.
Notification of acceptance will be sent to the authors before November
30, 1998. The Special Issue is expected to be published by mid-1999.
