Call For Papers

As the genome project progresses, the size of sequence data is expected
increase dramatically, far exceeding current analysis capabilities.
Rapid and 
efficient analysis of this data will only be possible with significant
performance computing resources.  The goal of this section is to present
results in Computer Science and Computer Engineering that enable the use
high performance computers to advance both BioInformatics and
Biology.  We are interested in both advances in algorithms and problem 
formulations and implementation of computational tools. Topics of 

- Computational Tools to Compare Genomic Sequences
- Construction, Maintenance and Operation of Genomic Databases
- Multiple Sequence Alignment
- Parallel Algorithms for sequence and structure alignment
- Molecular Dynamics
- Protein Folding Simulation using Parallel Computers
- Prediction of Protein Structures
