Special Issue on

Soft Computing for Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics


The past few years have witnessed phenomenal growth of
bioinformatics and medical informatics, exciting fields devoted to
the interpretation and analysis of biological and medical 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 and
medical informatics, but also clarifying outstanding issues for
future progress.

Biological and medical areas of interest include but are not limited
to the following:

* genomics,
* proteomics,
* molecular sequence analysis,
* molecular interactions and structure,
* gene expression,
* metabolic pathways,
* regulatory networks,
* developmental control and systems biology,
* brain and bio-medical imaging,
* bio-medical signal processing and pattern recognition,
* bio-medical data mining.

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

* David Corne ( XXXX@XXXXX.COM )
* Gary Fogel ( XXXX@XXXXX.COM )
* Jagath C. Rajapakse ( XXXX@XXXXX.COM )
* Lipo Wang ( XXXX@XXXXX.COM )

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