You still have few days left to respond to the call for papers to contribute to the special issue on Computational Systems Biomedicine of "Briefings in Bioinformatics", the international forum for researchers and educators in the life sciences. The deadline expires on Oct 31st, 2014
Biomedical and clinical researchers and practitioners are increasingly realizing that the human body cannot be subdivided into independent components, and that genes, proteins, cells and organs interact with each other and with the environment in complex ways. This has lead to the emergence of computational systems biomedicine, which aims to shed new light on these interactions by integrating data from different disciplines into biological models with the power of computer science, mathematics or engineering for the holistic understanding of health and disease. The aim of this special issue is to provide readers with a set of reviews that describe the latest concepts, innovations, approaches, and technologies in the area of computational systems biomedicine. Topics include but are not limited to computational approaches to aspects arising from the following clinical drivers of computational systems biomedicine:
The intent to submit should be sent by email to Werner Dubitzky, Biomedical Sciences Research Institute, Ulster University, Coleraine, UK (email:firstname.lastname@example.org) containing a provisional title of the paper, 3-5 sentences describing the topics covered by the article, and the provisional list of authors. Review papers should be between 2,000 and 5,000 words and be submitted using the online submission facility on Manuscript Central (follow link for full instructions for authors).
