Special Issue in Algorithms: Algorithms and Data-Structures for Compressed Computation
Computational Biology and Bioinformatics offer a wealth of new and interesting topics to the algorithmic community. This is true not only because new technologies push data production rates to ever higher and more challenging levels, but also because both old and new computational aspects of (modern) biological problems are constantly rewritten and originally presented. The open access journal Algorithms will host a special issue on ``Algorithmic Themes in Bioinformatics'', whose aim is to offer a forum for exchanging and proposing new ideas and techniques related with the design and usage of algorithms in Bioinformatics.
The following is a (non-exhaustive) list of topics of interest:
- Algorithms for sequence and structure alignment
- Algorithms for pattern search in genomic sequences
- Algorithms for sequence assembly
- Algorithms for structural variation analysis
- Algorithmic issues with new sequencing technologies
- Algorithms for feature selection
- Algorithmic issues in phylogenetic analysis and comparison
- Algorithms and data structures for clustering of sequences and structures
- Algorithms for protein structure prediction and analysis

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. Algorithms 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 1400 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.
