In Silico Biology Relaunch and Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce that In Silico Biology is now a journal devoted exclusively to biological systems modeling and simulation, and we invite researchers working in this rapidly growing field to submit original research manuscripts for publication and proposals for reviews and special issues.

In Silico Biology has a new editorial team composed of internationally recognized, leading researchers in quantitative systems and synthetic biology, and aims to become one of the leading journals of research on modeling and simulation in these areas. We offer:

• Immediate online publication upon acceptance
• Rapid editorial decisions
• Traditional in-print publication
• No publication fee
• Low Open Access fee

Open Access fee will be waived for all manuscripts submitted in response to this call

About the Journal
In Silico Biology is a scientific research journal for the advancement of computational models and simulations in studies of complex biological phenomena. We publish peer-reviewed leading-edge biological, biomedical and biotechnological research in which computer-based (i.e., "in silico") modeling and analysis tools are developed and applied to generate new knowledge about biological systems dynamics, their design and control and their evolution.

Studies published in In Silico Biology generally use theoretical modelling and computational analysis to gain quantitative insights into molecular processes regulatory networks, cell physiology and morphology, tissue dynamics and organ systems. Specific areas of interest include signal transduction and information processing, gene expression and gene regulatory networks, metabolism, differentiation and morphogenesis, among others.

Submission of Papers
Authors are requested to submit their manuscript to isb_submissions@iospress.com. For detailed instructions to authors, check our website www.insilicobiologyjournal.com/submission-of-manuscript.
