CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Issue of Tsinghua Science and Technology on
Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
Published by Tsinghua University Press
Tsinghua Science and Technology was started publication in 1996. It is an international academic journal sponsored by Tsinghua University and is published bimonthly. This journal aims at presenting the up-to-date scientific achievements in computer science, electronic engineering, and other IT fields. It is indexed by EI and other abstracting indexes. From 2012ï¼the journal enters into IEEE Xplore Digital Library and all papers published there are freely downloadable.
This special issue is devoted to new research addressing the challenges in the areas of bioinformatics and computational biology. Biological and medical science is one of the fastest developing research fields in the last two decades. High throughput biological data that are used to provide information at molecular and genetic level are rapidly generated. Almost all research problems in biological and medical sciences nowadays are computationally hard. Computational techniques have become an indispensable tool to discover new biological insights. It has already enabled unprecedented advances in biological and medical sciences, and will continue to be a vibrant research area with broadening of computational techniques and new emerging challenges. The goal of this special issue is to gather recent advances addressing computational methods related to, or with application in, bioinformatics. It aims to publish high quality, original, unpublished research papers covering all issu!
es in bioinformatics and computational biology. Specific topics for this special issue include but are not limited to:
> Systems biology > Structural biology > Software tools and applications > Pattern discovery and classification > Molecular modeling and simulation > Biological data integration > Molecular sequence alignment and analysis > High-throughput sequencing data analysis > High-performance bio-computing > Genome analysis > Gene expression analysis > Data mining and visualization > Computational proteomics > Computational genetic epidemiology > Comparative genomics > Bio-ontologies > Biomolecular imaging > Biomedical databases > Population genetics > RNA and protein folding and structure prediction > Molecular evolution and phylogenetics > Medical imaging and pattern recognition
Papers submitted to this journal for possible publication must be original and must not be under consideration for publication in any other journals. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript, in PDF format, to the lead guest editor (yipan from gsu.edu) with the email subject "Tsinghua Science and Technology Special Issue on Bioinformatics - Paper Submission". Tsinghua Science and Technology has published three Special Issues on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology in Vol. 17, Issue 6, 2012, Vol. 18, Issue 5, 2013, and Vol. 19, Issue 6, 2014. They are available at http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/RecentIssue.jsp?punumber=5971803.
