During the past decades, computational biology has become an increasingly important research area in biological sciences. With the new generation technologies becoming cheaper and more popular in biolabs, huge volumes of biological data output is driving biology somehow to be a kind of data science. Therefore, computational resources and methods are playing a significant role in many biological studies. Big data in biological sciences are waiting for better curation, more efficient analysis, more precise interpretation, more accurate modelling and prediction.
We invite authors to contribute review articles and research papers on computational resources and methods for all aspects of biological studies. This special issue aims to provide an open, multidisciplinary forum for biological databases, web services, stand alone programs, relevant algorithms and methods for data mining and knowledge discovery in biology.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
