Submit Papers: Bioinformatics & Biology Insights

We invite you to submit a paper for a supplement to be published in Bioinformatics and Biology Insights in the next twelve months. The journal is extensively indexed and all published papers appear in Pubmed. The supplement focuses on current developments in machine learning techniques in biological data mining. In this supplement, we will discuss the use of machine-learning techniques to extract meaningful information from genetic and clinical data with the primary objective of…
