Open Computer Science: Computational methods in bioinformatics and biomedicine

                    ◄ Back to journal 


The introduction of new technologies in molecular biology and biomedicine leads to new interesting problems from a theoretical/algorithmic and an experimental point of view. These new technologies produce a huge amount of data. The analysis of this huge amount of data produced by these technologies requires extremely efficient methods and introduces new computational challenging problems.

This special issue seeks new contributions on novel computational approaches and protocols to relevant problems in bioinformatics and biomedicine, including: algorithm design (theoretical and experimental aspects), applied bioinformatics and biomedicine, artificial and computational intelligence, data analytics, distributed computing, e-health and m-health applications.
