Mining bioinformatics data is an emerging area at the intersection between bioinformatics and data mining. The objective of IJDMB is to facilitate collaboration between data mining researchers and bioinformaticians by presenting cutting edge research topics and methodologies in the area of data mining for bioinformatics. This perspective acknowledges the inter-disciplinary nature of research in data mining and bioinformatics and provides a unified forum for researchers/practitioners/students/policy makers to share the latest research and developments in this fast growing multi-disciplinary research area.
Topics covered include
- Biological data pre-processing and cleaning
- Biological data visualisation
- Biological data integration and management
- Biomedical ontologies construction/management
- Microarray data analysis
- Protein/RNA structure prediction
- Genomics and proteomics
- Drug design
- Biomedical literature data mining
- Modelling of biomolecular pathways
- Whole, multiple genome comparison
- Systems biology and pathways
- Biological data curation
IJDMB aims to publish the latest research and development results and experiences in the areas of bioinformatics, data mining and knowledge discovery, and the role of data mining techniques and methods in integrating and interpreting the bioinformatics data sets and improving effectiveness and/or efficiency and quality for bioinformatics data analysis. The major objective of IJDMB is to stimulate new multidisciplinary research and the development of cutting-edge data mining methods, techniques and tools to solve problems in bioinformatics. The goal is to help readers understand state-of-the-art techniques/algorithms/methods in bioinformatics data gathering, data pre-processing, data mining and data management.
IJDMB provides a forum to help academics, practitioners, post-graduates and policy makers, working in the area of data mining, data integration and management, bioinformatics, life sciences, healthcare, etc., to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work. The intended audiences are data mining researchers/practitioners; bioinformatics specialists in academia and industry; chemists; system biologists/molecular biologists who rely on computer tools for data integration, data management, data analysis; mathematicians/statisticians who are interested in model development and simulation for life science data; computer scientists; post-graduate students with interests in developing and/or applying novel algorithms/methods in biology/biomedical domains.
IJDMB publishes original research papers (long and short papers, exploratory papers), review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference/workshop reports, application notes, book reviews, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in data mining and bioinformatics selected from top related conferences such as IEEE CSB, IEEE BIBE, PSB, RECOMB, ISMB, BIOKDD workshop etc., will occasionally be published.

Detecting drug-drug interactions
24 May, 2022
Research into neural networks could lead to a way to identify unexpected and potentially hazardous interactions between different medications being taken at the same time. Details are provided in the International Journal of Data Mining and Bioinformatics. When a patient is taking several medications simultaneously, there is always the risk that any one of those drugs might interact with another and either inhibit or enhance its activity beyond that which is required for the prescribed benefits. Similarly, one drug may interfere with the normal processing in the body, and specifically, the liver of another drug being taken at the same time, leading to a drug circulating in the bloodstream for longer. Either way, drug-drug interactions can cause side effects that are not seen when any of the given drugs is taken individually. Serena Rajakumar, G. Kavitha, and I. Sathik Ali of the Department of Information Technology, at the B.S.A. Crescent Institute of Science & Technology in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India, point out that there is a vast literature on drug-drug-interactions but extracting the requisite information from countless disparate sources is an almost impossible task, especially under the daily time pressures in a healthcare setting [...]More details...
