Goals: First, to provide a forum for communication of scientific and
technical issues associated with the analysis and management 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 comparisons,
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 these data. The mounting volume
and richness of data require multidisciplinary and quantitative
approaches for analysis and interpretation.
