Bioinformatics is a new scientific discipline that combines biology, computer science, mathematics, and statistics into a broad-based field that will have profound impacts on all fields of biology. Bioinformatics is expected to substantially impact on scientific, engineering and economic development of the world. Research and development in bioinformatics and computational biology require the cooperation of specialists from the fields of biology, computer science, mathematics, statistics, physics, and such related sciences. It is the comprehensive application of mathematics (e.g., probability and graph theory), statistics, science (e.g., biochemistry), and computer science (e.g., computer algorithms and machine learning) to the understanding of living systems. Bioinformatics is fast emerging as an important discipline for academic research and industrial application. The large size of biological data sets, inherent complexity of biological problems and the ability to deal with error-prone data all result in special requirements such as large memory space and huge computation time. IJBRA addresses the most innovative developments, research issues and solutions in bioinformatics and computational biology and their applications.
