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
Papers should be submitted in PDF format via email to any of the=20 following guest editors by 30
March 2004:
* David Corne ([email protected])
* Gary Fogel ([email protected])
* Jagath C. Rajapakse ([email protected])
