Aims and Scope

Bioinformatics Advances is an interdisciplinary journal on bioinformatics and computational biology. The journal covers bioinformatics methods, such as algorithms, statistics, databases and software as well as biological contributions for which the application of advanced computational methods is an essential factor. The major focus of the journal is on the molecular and cellular levels of biology. The journal covers bioinformatics both for established experimental approaches and for emerging technologies that require innovative computational support. Problems in basic research as well as applications and translational research are covered. The journal also will publish papers that will be of wide interest to the computational community in areas such as education and career development.
