Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biological and medical sciences are at the core of our societal and economical challenges more than ever before, and novel technologies are being developed day by day. The importance of biomedical sciences is further upheld because of the COVID-19 pandemics and scientific community as well as the general publics have recognized the immense contribution of biological and biomedical discovery to the human society. Many of these developments cannot be achieved without taking into account the interdisciplinarity and inter-modularity among bioscience, bioengineering, and bioinformatics. In order to provide an interactive forum for interdisciplinary studies on these and related areas, the 12th International Conference on Bioscience, Biochemistry and Bioinformatics (ICBBB 2022) will be held in Tokyo, Japan during January 7-10, 2022. ICBBB 2022 is organized by Hong Kong Chemical, Biological & Environmental Engineering Society (HKCBEES), co-organized by Tokai University and Biology and Bioinformatics Society (BBS), and technically supported by South China University of Technology. More information can be found at http://www.icbbb.org/.

This special issue covers a wide range of topics in Bioinformatics, Bioscience Engineering, Biomedicine Engineering, and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Plants, including (but not limited to) the following ones.

- Bioinformatics: bio-databases, bio-data mining, bio-imaging, sequence/structure/gene expression data analysis, systems biology

- Bioscience Engineering: medical robotics, nano-medicine, tissue engineering, bio-sensors, biomaterials, nano-bio-computing

- Biomedicine Engineering: clinical data analysis, biomedical signal/image analysis, bio-visualization, translational genomics

- Molecular Biology of Plants: drug discovery, bioenergy, molecular medicine, nano-biotechnology, protein engineering

Selected papers from the conference will be invited to this Special Issue. To comply with copyright agreements, papers submitted to the special issue must differ by a minimum of 30% from the papers submitted to ICBBB 2022 Conference Proceedings.

We welcome your latest contribution.

Prof. Dr. Tatsuya Akutsu and Prof. Dr. TSUI Kwok Wing Stephen

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at https://jour.ipublishment.com/bri by registering and logging into 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. 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 double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. Submitted papers should be well formatted and written in clear, concise English and should contain all essential data in order to make the presentation clear and the results of the study replicable. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see
