  • Bioinformatics

  • Journal of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (JBCB)

  • Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB)

  • BMC Bioinformatics

  • BMC Systems Biology

  • BMC Medical Genomics

Papers must not have been previously published and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format. All papers should be submitted at
