Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is related to the 10th Computational Structural Biology Workshop (CSBW), which will be held on 20 August, 2017, co-located with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BCB) Conference in Boston, Massachusetts.

The rapid accumulation of macromolecular structures presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities in the analysis, comparison, modeling, and prediction of macromolecular structures and interactions. CSBW annually brings together researchers with expertise in bioinformatics, computational biology, structural biology, data mining, optimization and high performance computing to discuss new results, techniques, and research problems in computational structural biology and structural bioinformatics. The workshop novel methodological contributions driven by important biological problems and furthering our knowledge and understanding of the role of macromolecular structure in biological processes.

Participants of CSBW 2017 are cordially invited to contribute original research papers to this Special Issue of Molecules.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
