The journal Molecular Based Mathematical Biology (MBMB) will publish a special issue entitled “Topological modeling and analysis of big data in biomolecules”. The purpose of this special issue is to create a medium for researchers from mathematical and biological sciences and other related disciplines to report novel mathematical models, computational algorithms, and biological applications in the fields of molecular level biosciences and biophysics.

MBMB 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:

  • Topological characterization of biomolecules
  • DNA/RNA topology and self-assembly processes
  • Viral capsids and their assembly
  • Protein rigidity and flexibility analysis
  • Topological data analysis (TDA) of biomolecules
  • Cryo-EM data analysis
  • Biomolecular simulations and data analysis
  • Quantum chemical topology, atoms in molecules
  • Protein folding
  • We seek high-quality original research papers, as well as communications and survey papers related to the topic of this issue.


Before submission authors should carefully read over the author guidelines. 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, and articles will be open-access in accordance with the overall goals of the journal. Prospective authors should submit their manuscript online at http://mlbmb.edmgr.com/.

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,
  • free and fast online publication of articles,
  • online submission and tracking system.

Important Dates:

Manuscript Due: October 1, 2016
First Round of Reviews: November 15, 2016
Anticipated Publication Date: January 15, 2017
