Subject: GPEM journal special issue on Biological applications of Evolutionary Computation
GENETIC PROGRAMMING AND EVOLVABLE MACHINES
Submissions are invited for a special issue of the journal on the theme of
BIOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS OF GENETIC AND EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION
Wolfgang Banzhaf and James Foster, editors
The field of Genetic and Evolutionary Computation has greatly benefited
by borrowing ideas from Biology. Recently, it has become clear that GEC
can help to solve biological problems, and thereby to "repay the debt".
It is also becoming apparent that the computer itself can be used as a
model organism with which to study evolutionary processes in nature.
We invite manuscripts presenting significant original research that
applies GEC to biological problems. Topics of interest include
(but not limited to):
More information about GPEM (including contents of recent issues)
can be found at
- Data mining biological data repositories
- Sequence alignment
- Phylogenetic reconstruction
- Gene expression and regulation, alternate splicing
- Functional diversification through gene duplication
and exon shuffling
- Structure Prediction for biological molecules (structural
genomics and proteomics)
- Network reconstruction for development, expression,
metabolism, catalysis, etc.
- Dynamical system approaches to biological systems
- Simulation of cells, viruses, organisms, and ecologies
