The journal Molecular Based Mathematical Biology (MBMB) will publish a special issue entitled “Molecular biosciences and biophysics: models, methods and applications”. 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 processes 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:

  • Geometric and topological modeling of macromolecules
  • Biomolecular solvation, explicit and implicit solvation models
  • Electrostatics computing and applications
  • Structural determination and molecular shape analysis of molecules
  • Protein folding, protein-­‐protein interactions
  • Brownian dynamics, molecular dynamics, and Monte Carlo modeling of biomolecular systems
  • Modeling and simulation of Ion-­‐channels and membrane
  • Mathematical analysis of biological macro-molecule Cryo-EM image data
  • Algorithms and analysis for molecular big data
  • Biomolecular simulations and software developments
  • Multiscale modeling
  • Mathematical methods for molecular imaging and visualization


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, but articles will be open-access in accordance with the overall goals of the journal.
