Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary research field that combines biology, computer science, mathematics and statistics into a broad-based field that will have profound impacts on all fields of biology. The emphasis of IJBRA is on basic bioinformatics research methods, tool development, performance evaluation and their applications in biology. IJBRA addresses the most innovative developments, research issues and solutions in bioinformatics and computational biology and their applications.
Topics covered include
- Databases, bio-grid, system biology
- Biomedical image processing, modelling and simulation
- Bio-ontology and data mining, DNA assembly, clustering, mapping
- Computational genomics/proteomics
- Silico technology: computational intelligence, high performance computing
- E-health, telemedicine
- Gene expression, microarrays, identification, annotation
- Genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic, neural networks, data visualisation
- Hidden Markov models, machine learning, support vector machines
- Molecular evolution, phylogeny, modelling, simulation, sequence analysis
- Parallel algorithms/architectures, computational structural biology
- Phylogeny reconstruction algorithms, physiome, protein structure prediction
- Sequence assembly, search, alignment
- Signalling/computational biomedical data engineering
- Simulated annealing, statistical analysis, stochastic grammars
The objectives of IJBRA are to develop, promote and coordinate the development and practice of bioinformatics and computational biology. IJBRA aims to help professionals working in the field, academic educators and policy-makers to contribute, to disseminate knowledge, and to learn from each other's work. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological change and changes in the global economy. IJBRA is an outstanding outlet that can shape a significant body of research in the field of bioinformatics and computational biology and in which results can be shared across institutions, governments, researchers and students, and also industry.
IJBRA provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers, graduate students, and managers, working in the field of bioinformatics and computational biology, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.
IJBRA publishes original and review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, and notes, commentaries, and news. Contribution may be by submission or invitation, and suggestions for special issues and publications are welcome.

Probing the genetics of autoimmune disease
24 January, 2023
There are many different forms of autoimmune disease, but by definition they all have one thing in common – they arise when the body's immunological defences go awry and attack our cells or trigger biochemical changes that lead to inflammation and other responses that can be detrimental to our health. There are at least 150 different autoimmune diseases, some of them have the status of rare disease while others, such as Type I diabetes and inflammatory bowel disease are quite common. Research in the International Journal of Bioinformatics Research and Applications has looked at several autoimmune diseases using bioinformatics to help improve our understanding of these important diseases [...]More details...
