DISCRETE APPLIED MATHEMATICS
CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THE
COMPUTATIONAL MOLECULAR BIOLOGY SERIES
We are happy to announce a new call for papers in
Computational Molecular Biology Series of "Discrete Applied Mathematics".
Series Editors: Sorin Istrail, Pavel Pevzner, Ron Shamir
Submission Deadline for the next volume: November 1, 2000
Manuscripts are solicited for a volume of "Discrete Applied Mathematics"
on topics concerning the development of new combinatorial and
algorithmic techniques in computational molecular biology. This volume
will be the fourth in the Computational Molecular Biology Series of
Discrete Applied Mathematics, which publishes papers on the mathematical
and algorithmic foundations of the inherently discrete aspects of
computational biology. The refereeing of the papers in this series will
be thorough and will follow the general pattern of refereeing of regular
papers in the journal.
The traditional partnership of mathematics and physics has advanced
and enriched both disciplines. In a similar partnership, mathematics
and algorithms have become crucial tools in the rapid advancement
of molecular biology. At the same time, the computational challenges
of these biological disciplines raise exciting new problems in
discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science.
The following is a (non-exhaustive) list of possible topics of
interest for the series:
DNA mapping
DNA sequencing
DNA/protein sequence comparison
Molecular evolution
RNA/Protein folding and structure prediction
Gene/motif recognition
Genome rearrangements
Gene function determination
Drug design and combinatorial chemistry
DNA arrays
Functional genomics
Computational proteomics
The response to the first three calls for papers in this series was very strong,
and resulted in three volumes that appeared in 1996, 1998 and 2000.
The Series Editors will continue to assure a thorough and timely refereeing process.
Four (4) hard copies of complete manuscripts should be sent to any of
the series editors by November 1, 2000. Manuscripts may be submitted
earlier and their refereeing process will be initiated upon submission.
The submission should be accompanied by an email message containing only
the plain text (ASCII) of the abstract of the paper and the postscript file
of the manuscript to expedite the reviewing process.
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the
normal submission requirements of Discrete Applied Mathematics, as
described in each issue of the journal.
