Special Issue "Systems Bioinformatics: How Networks and Systems Biology Boost Precision/Personalized Medicine"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2022.
2. Cyprus School of Molecular Medicine, PO Box 23462, 1683 Nicosia, Cyprus
Interests: systems bioinformatics; network-based analysis and integration; computational methods for biomarker discovery and drug repurposing
Systems bioinformatics combine network-based bioinformatics approaches with systems biology to provide answers to problems that deal with multilevel and multiscale data handling and integration, discovery of patterns of biomarkers, analysis of systemic effects, revealing connected communities of molecular pathways related to a disease, analysis of synergistic effects on a molecular level, bridging the gap between molecular and phenotypic findings, monitoring of network differentiation among biological states, and many others. This is a framework in which systems approaches are applied to -omics data, setting the level of resolution and studying the emerging properties of the system as a whole rather than the sum of the properties derived from the system’s individual components. Systems bioinformatics is a modern view of what computer science, physics, mathematics, and other sciences can do for biology and medicine, generating new knowledge, methods, tools as well as more demanding questions for precision and personalized medicine.
Therefore, authors are invited to submit original research and review articles which address the progress and current standing of network-based and other systems bioinformatics approaches for precision/personalized medicine.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
