More on this journal...

There is great potential to increase the interaction between computational intelligence, bioinformatics and system biology. IJCIBSB aims to bridge the gap between the computational intelligence and bioinformatics communities. We believe that computational intelligence will provide more powerful tools for analysing, predicting and understanding data from gene expression and other emerging genomic and proteomic technologies. IJCIBSB aims to provide a lively forum for the communication of original research. Its main objective is the timely dissemination of original research work on innovative computational intelligence paradigms and their applications in bioinformatics.


The audience of IJCIBSB consists of medical practitioners, scientists, researchers, academics, graduate students, professionals and engineers working and interested in learning about new trends in computational intelligence in bioinformatics and systems biology.


IJCIBSB publishes original peer-reviewed papers, which include research papers, review papers, case studies and book reviews. Special Issues devoted to important topics in computational intelligence in bioinformatics and systems biology will occasionally be published.
