                  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
optimization and 
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 <>). 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
to be published by mid-1999.
