Special Issue in Mathematics: Mathematical Sciences for Sustainability
Biology, biotechnology, computer science, mathematical sciences, and data science interactively contribute to progress in bioinformatics. In the laboratory and through clinical research, massive data is produced. A mathematical model of a biological process may lead to computer simulation and the model may be validated by comparison of real data to simulation data. The human genome project and the start of the personal human genome project got a lot of press coverage and exemplify very well the need for development and maintenance of a robust cyber-infrastructure to enable transformative biological research.
We seek papers on innovative approaches to the application of mathematics and computer science to problems in biology and papers that address the critical properties of the cyber-infrastructure for continued progress in biological research.

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. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1600 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.
