The aim of this special issue is to present the latest efforts for  
bioinformatics applications development that can be exploited in  
computational biology. We are especially interested in parallel  
implementations of algorithms and systems, use case descriptions of  
distributed open access platforms for the bioinformatics community, or  
successful experiences of large-scale analysis and simulations in the  
field of computational biology. Topics of interest include, but are  
not limited to:
• Large scale infrastructures for high-performance bio-computing
• Parallel architectures for bioinformatics applications
• Science gateways for computational biological analyses
• Techniques for biological databases access and integration
• Parallel algorithms for genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics
• Methods for systems biology network reconstruction, analysis, and  
• Algorithms for DNA assembly, sequence clustering, and reads mapping
• Machine learning approaches for SNP analysis and classification
• Gene expression and tissue microarray high-throughput platforms
• Structural approaches for protein modeling and interactions prediction
• Novel approaches to molecular dynamics simulation acceleration
• Large scale in silico ligand discovery and drug design projects

The submitted papers must be original, neither published anywhere else  
nor under any simultaneous consideration in any other venue. Extended  
contributions with respect to conference proceedings are allowed. In  
this case they must have at least 30% difference from the original  
works and a clear identification of the original contributions.
