              SOFT COMPUTING Journal - SPRINGER

                      Special Issue on

             Soft Computing for Bioinformatics

                       CALL FOR PAPERS

The past few years have witnessed phenomenal growth of
bioinformatics, an exciting field devoted to the interpretation and
analysis of biological data using computational techniques. Among
the large number of computational techniques used, soft computing,
which incorporates

   * neural networks,
   * evolutionary computation,
   * fuzzy systems, and
   * chaos,

stands out because of its demonstrated strength in handling
imprecise information and providing novel solutions to hard

This special issue aims at not only showcasing innovative
applications of soft computing techniques to bioinformatics, but
also clarifying outstanding issues for future progress.

Biological areas of interest include but are not limited to the

   * protein structure and function,
   * genomics,
   * proteomics,
   * molecular sequence analysis,
   * evolution and phylogenetics,
   * molecular interactions and structure,
   * gene expression,
   * metabolic pathways,
   * regulatory networks,
   * developmental control and systems biology.

Papers should be submitted in PDF format via email to any of the
following guest editors by 30 March 2004:

   * David Corne (D.W.Corne at exeter.ac.uk)
   * Gary Fogel (gfogel at natural-selection.com)
   * Jagath C. Rajapakse (asjagath at ntu.edu.sg)
   * Lipo Wang (elpwang at ntu.edu.sg)

Please include title/abstract and author contact information in text
format in the email. More information about the Soft Computing
