Special Issue "Biological Networks"
A special issue of Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 August 2016).
In bioinformatics, the behaviors of cells are often mathematically modeled by many kinds of biological networks, including gene regulatory networks, metabolic networks, protein-protein interaction networks, signal networks, transcription networks, phylogenetic networks, etc.
The main themes of this Special Issue (though not an exhaustive list) are algorithms for biological networks, which include discrete algorithms, statistical algorithms, heuristic algorithms, probabilistic algorithms, randomized algorithms, and machine-learning methods to solve problems on biological networks that are computationally efficient. We accept both review papers and research papers.

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. Algorithms 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 1000 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.
