Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bioinformatics and Computational Biology has become an important part of many areas of biology. The era of bioinformatics emerges accompanied by the development and application of various omics technologies, from genomics to the latest single cell omics. Huge amount of omics data and numerous analysis tools have been generated, which brings more challenges. How to carry out integrative bioinformatics research, including the integration of data, methods, even tools and so on? How to conduct integrative biology studies on biological problems in health, agriculture and ecology, etc. based on integrated omics data and bioinformatics methods and technologies? This special issue is dedicated to advances in multiple omics and integrative biology, especially single cell scale omics, integrative bioinformatics and its interdisciplinary disciplines, promote the convergence of biological data and big data integration and analysis of functional genomics, transcriptomics, RNomics, proteomics and metabolomics, and accelerate the integration and analysis of biological research in health, resources and other fields.

The 10th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (ICBCB 2022) will be held in Hangzhou, China from 13 to 15 May 2022. ICBCB conference series will be held annually to provide an interactive forum for presentation and discussion on bioinformatics and computational biology. As one of the partners of ICBCB 2022, Biology, is an international, peer-reviewed, quick-refereeing open access journal of Biological Science published by MDPI online, aims to build a platform through this special issue to demonstrate the application of bioinformatics and computational biology approaches to a variety of biological problems in the life sciences. Selected papers presented at the conference and included in the conference proceedings are invited to be submitted as extended versions to this Special Issue.
