    Special Issue on
    Soft Computing for Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics
    The past few years have witnessed phenomenal growth of=20 bioinformatics and medical informatics,
    exciting fields devoted to=20 the interpretation and analysis of biological and medical data
    using=20 computational techniques. Among the large number of computational=20 techniques used, soft
    computing, which incorporates=20
    * neural networks,=20
    * evolutionary computation,=20
    * fuzzy systems, and=20
    * chaos,=20
    stands out because of its demonstrated strength in handling=20 imprecise information and providing
    novel solutions to hard=20 problems.=20
    This special issue aims at not only showcasing innovative=20 applications of soft computing
    techniques to bioinformatics and=20 medical informatics, but also clarifying outstanding issues
    for=20 future progress.=20
    Biological and medical areas of interest include but are not limited=20 to the following:=20
    * genomics,=20
    * proteomics,=20
    * molecular sequence analysis,=20
    * molecular interactions and structure,=20
    * gene expression,=20
    * metabolic pathways,=20
    * regulatory networks,=20
    * developmental control and systems biology,
    * brain and bio-medical imaging,
    * bio-medical signal processing and pattern recognition,
    * bio-medical data mining. =20
