Aim & Scope of the journal

The leading journal in its field,American Journal of  Bioinformatics publishes the highest quality scientific papers and review articles of interest to academic and industrial researchers. Its main focus is on new developments in genome bioinformatics and computational biology. Two distinct sections within the journal - Discovery Notes and Application Notes - focus on shorter papers; the former reporting biologically interesting discoveries using computational methods, the latter exploring the applications used for experiments.

Topics covered include​​

Databases, bio-grid, system biology, Biomedical image processing, modelling and simulation, Bio-ontology and data mining, DNA assembly, clustering, mapping, Computational genomics/proteomics, Silico technology: computational intelligence, high performance computing, E-health, telemedicine, Gene expression, microarrays, identification, annotation, Genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic, neural networks, data visualisation, Hidden Markov models, machine learning, support vector machines, Molecular evolution, phylogeny, modelling, simulation, sequence analysis, Parallel algorithms/architectures, computational structural biology, Phylogeny reconstruction algorithms, physiome, protein structure prediction, Sequence assembly, search, alignment, Signalling/computational biomedical data engineering, Simulated annealing, statistical analysis, stochastic grammars.
