Call for Papers: Special issue to Biostatistics and Mathematical Modelling in Bioinformatics


With Big Data Analytics becoming more and more crucial for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology studies, the EMBnet Journal Editors would like to dedicate a special issue to Biostatistics and Mathematical Modelling in Bioinformatics. Therefore, we are welcoming both research and review articles that are relevant to the themed topics. Contributions may include but are not limited to, metagenomic analyses, structural and molecular modelling studies as well as biological and medical questionnaire-based surveys and clinical trials.
