Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 2020 International Conference on Intelligent Biology and Medicine (ICIBM 2020) will be held on August 9–11, 2020 in Philadelphia, PA, USA. The webpage for this event is https://icibm2020.iaibm.org/

The ICIBM conference series has two main aims: 1) to foster interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research in bioinformatics-related fields, and 2) to provide an educational program for trainees and young investigators across a range of scientific disciplines to learn about the frontier research in these areas and to build a network among both established and junior investigators.

The current Special Issue invites submissions on unpublished original work describing recent advances in all aspects of bioinformatics, systems biology, intelligent computing, and medical informatics, including but not restricted to the following topics:

  1. Genomics and genetics, including integrative and functional genomics, and genome evolution.
  2. Next-generation sequencing data analysis, applications, and software and tools.
  3. Big data science including storage, analysis, modeling, visualization, and cloud.
  4. Precision medicine, translational bioinformatics, and medical informatics.
  5. Drug discovery, design, and repurposing.
  6. Proteomics and protein structure prediction, molecular simulation, and evolution.
  7. Single-cell sequencing data analysis.
  8. Microbiome and metagenomics.

A full list of topics is available on the conference website.

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 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.
