The journal Molecular Based Mathematical Biology (MBMB) will publish a special issue entitled “Bio-molecular data modeling and mining”. The purpose of this special issue is to create a medium for researchers from mathematical, computational and biological sciences and other related disciplines to report novel mathematical models, computational algorithms, and biological applications to the data mining, machine learning, knowledge discovery and pattern recognition from large-scale bio-molecular data of various types and dimensionalities, include but not limit to 1D sequence, 2D image, 3D volume and structure data. 

MBMB (http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/mlbmb) is a recently established journal, whose aim is to promote the mathematical study and findings of biological structure, functions and dynamics at the molecular scale. Original papers and high-quality review articles on the aforementioned topics are solicited for this special issue.


Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Cryo-Electron Microscopy (Cryo-EM) data analysis
  • Image processing, graphical modeling and visualization
  • Geometric and topological modeling of macromolecules
  • Structural determination and molecular shape analysis of molecules
  • Structure Alignment of macromolecules
  • Machine learning and data mining in molecular big data
  • Algorithms, analysis and validation for bio-molecular data
  • Molecule-related software or database development
  • Gene regulatory network and genome wide association study
  • Metagenomics data analysis and modeling of Epigenetics data
  • Single cell sequencing data analysis


Before submission authors should carefully read over the author guidelines, which are located at http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/mlbmb. All manuscripts are subject to the standard peer review process before publication. Please note the publisher has waived the Article Processing Charges for this special issue, but articles will be open-access in accordance with the overall goals of the journal.

Prospective authors should submit their manuscript on line at http://mlbmb.edmgr.com/

When entering your submission in the system choose the option Bio-molecular data modeling and mining as an article type.

Submissions for the special issue are now open.

The deadline for the submissions is October 1, 2017, but individual papers will be reviewed and published online as they arrive.

Important Dates:
Manuscript Due, Oct. 1, 2017; 
First round of reviews: Nov. 15, 2017; 
Anticipated publication date: Feb. 15, 2018.

Contributors to the Topical Issue will benefit from:

  • fair and constructive peer review provided by recognized experts in the field,
  • Open Access to your article for all interested readers,
  • fast online publication of articles,
  • online submission and tracking system,
  • no publication fees,
  • free language assistance for authors from non-English speaking regions;

We are looking forward to your submission. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Dong Si at donsi@uw.edu.
