Goals:  First, to provide a forum for communication of scientific and technical
issues associated with the analysis, management, and visualization of biological
information at the molecular level.  COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY will accept papers on
the computational, mathematical and statistical aspects of molecular biology.  
This includes sequence comparison, analysis and searching; DNA and protein 
sequence determination; DNA topological structure; protein structure; RNA 
secondary and tertiary structure; genetic mapping; physical mapping; molecular 
evolution including phylogenetic reconstructions; parallel methods of 
computation; design and implementation of biological databases; biological 
expert system design and use; application of artificial intelligence methods to 
biological systems.

Second to provide a forum for the exchange of problems and methods between and 
within the biological and the mathematical/computational communities.  This will
be accomplished by soliciting mini-reviews in diverse areas, and by providing a
forum for the informal exchange of theories and experimental approaches.

The growth of molecular biology has produced large amounts of complex data 
consequently creating challenging new problems in the analysis, interpretation 
and handling of this data.  The mounting volume and richness of data require 
multidisciplinary and quantitative approaches for analysis and interpretation.
