Publisher: Inderscience

Bioinformatics is a new scientific discipline that combines biology,
computer science, mathematics, and statistics into a broad-based field that
will have profound impacts on all fields of biology. Bioinformatics is
expected to substantially impact on scientific, engineering and economic
development of the world.

Research and development in bioinformatics and computational biology require
the cooperation of specialists from the fields of biology, computer science,
mathematics, statistics, physics, and such related sciences. It is the
comprehensive application of mathematics (e.g., probability and graph
theory), statistics, science (e.g., biochemistry), and computer science
(e.g., computer algorithms and machine learning) to the understanding of
living systems. Bioinformatics is fast emerging as an important discipline
for academic research and industrial application. The large size of
biological data sets, inherent complexity of biological problems and the
ability to deal with error-prone data all result in special requirements
such as large memory space and huge computation time.

International Journal of Bioinformatics Research and Applications (IJBRA)
addresses the most innovative developments, research issues and solutions in
bioinformatics and computational biology and their applications.

The objectives of IJBRA are to develop, promote and coordinate the
development and practice of bioinformatics and computational biology. IJBRA
aims to help professionals working in the field, academic educators and
policy-makers to contribute, to disseminate knowledge, and to learn from
each other's work.

The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and
national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological change
and changes in the global economy. IJBRA is an outstanding outlet that can
shape a significant body of research in the field of bioinformatics and
computational biology and in which results can be shared across
institutions, governments, researchers and students, and also industry.

IJBRA publishes original and review papers, technical reports, case studies,
conference reports, management reports, book reviews, and notes,
commentaries, and news. Contribution may be by submission or invitation, and
suggestions for special issues and publications are welcome.
