Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Bioinformatics have become an intensive research topic in the past decade and have attracted a great many leading scientists, working in biology, physics, mathematics and computer science. Especially, in computer science in China, there are many academics engaged in bioinformatics, where they are aimed at providing computing skills and applications for biological data mining and management, algorithm design and analysis, software development, etc. In this field, optimal, statistical, and many other computational methods and tools have been developed and are widely used. The goal of the CCF Bioinformatics Conference (CBC) is to provide a domestic forum for scientists, researchers, educators, and practitioners to exchange ideas and approaches, to present research findings and state-of-the-art solutions in this interdisciplinary field, and to also build a constructive dialogue between two research areas: Computer science and biology. The Third CCF Bioinformatics Conference (CBC 2018) will take place October 12–14, 2018, in Xi’an, Shaanxi, P.R. China. The conference is administered by the Bioinformatics Committee of CCF. The CBC 2018 is organized by Xidian University, and co-organized by Xi'an Jiaotong University. The website of CBC 2018 is http://bioinformatics.xidian.edu.cn/cbc2018en/.
The conference will highlight challenges emerging from this encounter and solicit papers that propose state-of-the-art computational solutions to practical and theoretical issues that arise from the biological and medical fields.

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. Genes 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 2400 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.
